      The information gained has made me understand more about mindfulness practice. I engaged in learning and understanding this amazing technique last year due to an array of traumatic episodes. The Mindfulness techniques have made me aware of the present moment and accept my misfortunes plus establish peace and calmness in my daily life.
      Thank you Dr Goleman for an eye-opening talk and shared findings plus your superb your knowledge of what Mindfulness is really about.

      I am still learning but I have found that I can accept my physical and mental pains but if you can tell me whether the pains can be controlled too, I will yruly appreciate it. I am avoiding to use conventional remedies if possible. Your talk was excellent and very interesting indeed. Thank you so.much for all the useful questions asked as well by Dr. Parneet Pal

    I’ve been practicing self-compassion mindfulness regularly for more than a year and I find the quality of my life so much better. The talk was excellent! Thanks!

    Thank you so much Drs. Goleman and Pal! Great first exposure to both of your work.

    Took quite a bit from the session, and especially enjoyed the last two interactions about the role of mindfulness in political, social, environmental, and various other important spheres of society!

    Hello there, thanks for this beautiful scan of the current state of research on mindfulness. It was clear and high level. A joy to listen and learn.

    Doing research on “the moderating influence of trait mindfulness on stressrelated eating” for the moment, I have following question for Mr. Goleman and staff:
    – is dr. Golemans review published? If so, could you send me the reference?
    – do you have interesting tips, references concerning research on trait or dispositional mindfulness?

    Thanks in advance.

    I enjoyed Dr. Coleman’s presentation. As a staff chaplain, I am reminded daily that my efficacy and ability to be truly present for/with patients and families is directly related to the compassion I offer to myself.

  9. Kanchi October 2, 2020 at 12:57 pm

    An eye opening conversation. Two new things that I learned :
    1.the difference between a state effect and a trait effect.
    2. 3 different types of empathy..
    This talk has provided me with more nuanced language with which to process the concept/practice of mindfulness. Thank you.

  10. Nadja October 2, 2020 at 2:31 am

    Great conversation and overview about mindfulness. Dan, I agree with you – mindfulness is a cognitive exercise. I am a firm believer that mindfulness helps you to get grounded and get clarity and is the first step in order to make a conscious decision and problem solve.

    I took so many notes! Thank you!

  11. Lise October 2, 2020 at 1:45 am

    Thank you for this very interesting and inspiring conversation!

  12. Clayton Micallef October 2, 2020 at 12:09 am

    Daniel Goleman, de los mejores en la materia, soy su alumno

    Good talk and a reminder that funding and follow-up with grade A studies will reinforce the acceptance of practice, and reduce the noise of some unfounded claims.

  15. Elzbieta October 1, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Thank you. What a great idea of 3 types of empathy.

  16. Betty Everett October 1, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    This was enlightening, interesting and helpful.

  17. Liza Acuña October 1, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    Thank you very much Dr. Coleman. I consider myself a beginner mindfulness practitioner, and the word mindfulness came to me through education, since I am an ELT coach, who experienced burn out. Despite the fact this summit is addressed to Healthcare providers, what you mentioned here applies also to educators. You provided me with many answers regarding the science of mindfulness. I will be glad to help doing research on the education sector in Mexico. Also thank you to Dr. Parneet Pal for doing excellent questions.

  18. Jean Ellis-Sankari October 1, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    What a wonderful conversation.
    Thank you so very much.
