    I so appreciate this sharing of insights into the practice of empathy and compassion. The willingness to share personal accounts and benefits with humble passion and name living with ADD and dyslexia is helpful to me as someone working in the helping fields while also coexisting with health matters. Thank you. This sort of sharing helps quiet the inflammation of stigmatization and is a real example of a “wounded healer” stance of empathy and compassion.

    The best part of this conversation was Dr. Calabrese’s personal story. His vulnerability was heartfelt and authentic.

    Fantastic talk thanks for sharing, I will look out for more of Dr. Calabrese’s work. It’s a shame that the app Stress-Free Now is only available for iPhone.

    I don’t think there was mention of the effect and impact of seeing and witnessing and being with a lot of trauma and traumatised people on the health care professionals and all staff in those settings. (Or did I miss that?).

    I loved to hear Leonard Calebrese, MD talk not only about mindfulness but about his own transformation
    I am a health care professional and believe this practice will help as well

    This was most interesting! I do like the “wellness intervention”‘ approach.
