Lunch @UCBerkeley with Dacher Keltner – The science of happinessDOWNLOADABLE GUIDE TO SUNDAY EVENTS
Dacher Keltner will cover a wide range of research showing that compassion, kindness, gratitude and positive emotions are not only beneficial but also critical to human health, well-being and survival. It will include his findings that nature-inspired awe can reduce the body’s pro-inflammatory proteins, that real influence is based on empathy, generosity and cooperation, and that people from lower socio-economic classes are more attuned to other people’s needs than their more affluent counterparts. For more information about his research visit the Berkeley Social Interaction Laboratory website: http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~keltner.
