COURSE DESCRIPTION: Daniel Goleman, New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence, and Tsoknyi Rinpoche, internationally renowned meditation teacher, have co-created a new approach to traditional meditative teachings and methods. Tsoknyi found that after decades of teaching traditional methods to Westerners, these methods often did not work. Tsoknyi wanted to help heal the connection between mind and heart for his students. so he reinvented his approach to nourish the heart mind interconnections.  Pursuing this aim, he partnered with psychotherapists (such as Daniel Goleman) and neuroscientists to create a practical and soul-searching book to delve into how these teachings apply emotionally in our daily lives as presented in the new work, Why We Meditate: The Science and Practice of Clarity and Compassion.
