The One You Feed is a show I often listen to on my hikes or while doing chores around the house. It starts with the parable of the two wolves. You know the one. They have great guests and it’s always an interesting conversation.
The guest this week is our friend Kristin Neff, who my wife and I met because of our work at Square Peg Foundation — especially with Autism.
Joell knows Kristin better than I because of her many trips out to Kristin’s place near Austin, Texas to work with Kristin’s husband at Horseboy Foundation, but I follow Kristin’s work with interest.
Kristin Neff, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and her pioneering post-doctoral research on Self-Compassion is the basis for her book, Self Compassion: The proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself, and The Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, which she started with Dr. Christopher Germer of Harvard Medical School. These ideas are also well aligned with our Square Peg Foundation work and my consulting in technology and business.
This interview with Kristin is a great introduction to her research and the core ideas behind mindfulness and self-compassion. Enjoy!
