Synopsis

'Wise and perceptive. [It] teaches self-compassion and the consolations of kindness. I recommend it' - SALLY BRAMPTON, author of Shoot the Damn Dog



DEVELOP YOUR FEELINGS OF COMPASSION AND INCREASE YOUR SENSE OF WELL-BEING



In societies that encourage us to compete with each other, compassion is often seen as a weakness. Striving to get ahead, self-criticism, fear, and hostility towards others seem to come more naturally to us.



The Compassionate Mind explains the evolutionary and social reasons why our brains react so readily to threats - and reveals how our brains are also hardwired to respond to kindness and compassion.



Research has found that developing kindness and compassion for ourselves and others builds our confidence, helps us create meaningful, caring relationships and promotes physical and mental health. Far from fostering emotional weakness, practical exercises focusing on developing compassion have been found to subdue our anger and increase our courage and resilience to depression and anxiety.



'As one of Britain's most insightful psychologists, Gilbert illuminates the power of compassion in our lives' - OLIVER JAMES, author of Affluenza
