Author: Dalai Lama, Daniel Goleman
How do the brain, the immune system and emotional states interact? Can Meditation Have Positive Health Effects? What emotions go along with a better quality of life? To what extent do the psychophysical conditions of an individual benefit from a growth in self-esteem? On the occasion of the meetings of the third Mind and Life Conference, held in 1991 in Dharamsala, India, in the presence of the Dalai Lama, distinguished Western scientists and Buddhist masters tried to answer these and other scientific and ethical questions. Daniel Goleman collected some of the most significant speeches and debates from the conference.
