Compassion is a key motivator of altruistic behavior, but little is known about individuals’ capacity to cultivate compassion through training.
Now, through a recent scientific study, we've learned that it's possible to become a more compassionate person by training your brain.
Researchers from the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconson-Madison's Waisman Center found that engaging in compassion meditation -- where you practice feeling compassion for different groups of people, including yourself -- seemed to increase a sense of altruism.
"It's kind of like weight training," study researcher Helen Weng, a graduate student in clinical psychology at the university, said in a statement. "Using this systematic approach, we found that people can actually build up their compassion 'muscle' and respond to others' suffering with care and a desire to help."
Helen Weng is our guest this week on the Voice of Leadership, sharing more about this study and our ability to become more compassionate human beings.
Join Helen Brahms and Molly Burke as we tackle some of the traveling chalenges out there to take you from a tourist to a traveler with confidence to help you get off the beaten path. Today we are going to look at Cultural Awareness when traveling. What things should you be aware of when traveling. What may be okay for you to do or say at home could be offensive in another country and land you with a hefty fine or jail time.

The Lady’s Choice Crisis Intervention and Resource Center, founded in 2003 in Fayetteville, North Carolina by Helen Hooper, is exclusively dedicated to the teaching, building, and empowering of strong women of all ages.
Because women need to be given the proper tools, life skills, and strategies in order to make positive decisions, The Lady’s Choice is there for them no matter their age. Becoming a woman can make a young lady vulnerable and open to life’s unfair attacks and unseen obstacles. Without the proper guidance, education, and cultivation of women, our society will lose valuable leaders of tomorrow and will continue to lose precious mothers and daughters to the negative influences and tumultuous issues that plague women today.
The Lady’s Choice Crisis Intervention and Resource Center promotes high scholastics, mental/physical wellness, morals, and ethical standards, the foundation of our program. With our primary goal of preparing every woman for a perpetual life of success, The Center offers the opportunity for teens to develop a positive self-image while gaining life management, leadership, and communication skills. We assist ladies in making positive decisions concerning their personal endeavors in order to become effective future leaders, successful business women, precise decision-makers, knowledgeable wives, and nurturing mothers.
Our activities include Spring and Fall Tea Events, "Life Support" for Women, Lady's First Mentoring for young adult women, Motivational, Educational Speakers and workshops.
Helen Slater's career has encompassed motion pictures, television, music, and stage. Upon graduating from the famed High School of Performing Arts, her debut film performance inSupergirl, opposite Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole, won praise from the most cynical of critics and launched her performing career. She went on to star in such films as The Legend of Billie Jean, Ruthless People, The Secret of My Success, City Slickers, Sticky Fingers, Lassie, No Way Back, The Steal, and Seeing Other People, among others.
A singer and songwriter since her days at the High School of Performing Arts, Helen has performed at clubs and benefits in the Los Angeles area. She has also written music and lyrics for an urban opera, The Ugly Duckling, which has been presented in workshop form, as well as writing the music and lyrics to the musical for John Meek’s The Emperor’s Nightingale. As an artist, Helen has also released four CDs of her own original music, including a unique children’s album about Greek mythology entitled, Myths of Ancient Greece.

Hybrid Jazz has always strived to show class, dignity and variety with each episode. What you'll hear on 7/22/14 takes all of that to a new level. Helen Sung has been captivating listeners - via recording or live - since she emerged on the New York scene in the late 90's. But I'm getting ahead of myself ;)
Born to Chinese immigrants in Houston, our guest was playing piano at five. Her teacher was strict and permitted Helen to play only Classical music - which she did throughout her education at the respected Houston High School of Performing and Visual Arts. Her motivation for college: to teach and to perform when possible. All that changed when she saw Harry Connick, Jr., on stage - in Helen's last year of University of Texas at Austin.
The transition was swift. Obsessed with visualizing Harry's fingers on the piano, Helen got a hold of Everything-That-Is-Jazz: from Jelly Roll Morton to Keith Jarrett. She received dual degrees in Texas, but her eye was on the inaugural program at the Thelonious Monk Institute in Boston. It was mutual love - Helen's unique talent was now under the watchful eye of Artistic Director, Ron Carter. She toured with the Cream of the Jazz Crop - across the water with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. It changed her life. And ours who are fans.
That move to New York cemented what many already knew, including Wynton Marsalis, who now has HIS eye on where Helen Sung will land next. Terri Lyne Carrington knows, Helen having been a key component in the award-winning "Mosaic Project" in 2011. The Kennedy Center realizes her power, too - she is a recipient of the Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.
Her sixth project, "Anthem For a New Day" is brilliant and brave. We could go ON for days about Helen Sung - but let HER tell her story: on 7/22/14 :)

God In the Midst otherwise known as G.I.T.M or GITM is an apostolic ministry whose charge is to help encourage, edify and equip the people of God who are called to Home Churches, Small Churches and Para Church ministries. Home or house Churches usually have 20 people or less, Small Churches are up to 100 adults and Para Church ministries could be Bible Studies, Prayer groups, men or women’s ministries that are not Churches in and of themselves but walk alongside the Church. We are featuring one Home, Small or Para Church ministry each month by interviewing them. We hope that as you hear them tell their personal testimonies, share with us their history and current activities, the Lord will confirm what He has placed on your heart or it may encourage you to step out boldly …it may even catapult you to that next dimension in the Lord & ministry. Our Host is Apostle Barbara Kizzie
