This could be why you're Depressed or Anxious" Johann Hari.

Johann Hari, author of the book Lost Connections, shares how, when we diagnose Anxiety and Depression as a problem to be solved only by prescription drugs, you miss the wisdom within the experience... to what it is pointing to. Our deeper human needs for connection, purpose, belonging, agency etc. That we need to review the focus from "I" to "We" in creating the environments where people thrive.

How Humans handle conflict and restorative circles

What would happen if instead of separating, we actually moved together in times of conflict, bringing all the people together to hear each other, to actually listen? How might our responses be different if instead of separating at times of conflict, we actually were able to hear each other… and somehow be moved by what we hear. This video explores this and the work of Restorative Circles by Dominic Barter.

The Neuroscience of EmpathyThe Science of Empathy

How the brain is wired for empathy - by author and neuroscientist Dr. Thomas Lewis (A General Theory of Love)


A powerful stroke of insight

"In this remarkable Ted talk a brain scientist Dr Jill Bolte Taylor describes her experience of having a stroke, where the logic side of her brain shuts down. She shares what it is to know herself as one with the universe and how she recognises this as a very important awareness that we can develop as human beings. I was fascinated to hear someone with this scientific background describe the experience - it merges the science with the spiritual, and inspires me in what we can access as human beings."

Rewards and punishment don't work, intrinsic motivators doRewards and punishment don't work, intrinsic motivators do

This short TED talk (18 minutes), given a couple of months ago, shares recent research on how extrinsic motivation not only doesn't promote productivity but actually diminishes it.


The author, Dan Pink (who was a speech-writer for Al Gore), suggests there is no scientific basis for the belief in the reward and punishment model, except in situations where minimal cognitive creativity is unnecessary.

The research, he suggests, says that rewards and punishment not only don't work but actually impede progress. What does work, he says, are intrinsic motivators - and he names three needs as key: autonomy, mastery and purpose. "This is one of the most robust findings in social science. And also one of the most ignored", he says.

The talk is given from a business perspective, and I had no trouble 'adapting' it in my mind, to speak about families, the justice system or education. I really enjoyed the updated research findings. They supported me to be more upfront about what is, for me, a key aspect of NVC teaching. I hope the talk is also meaningful to you.
