SORT BY Relevancy
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.

Who is Rio Jonz? Well, if I knew that with clarity I would share. As it stands now I am a 45 year old man with an action-packed novel. But before this project I was a man without direction. Oh, I worked as a barber off and on for over 30 years in Compton, California. I'm a part-time daddy, because my marriage blew up in my face. And I'm also the go-to man when people need a good listener, or some advice on how to deal with life's issues. No degrees in these areas, though. I guess people just think I'm that approachable. All-in-all readers, I wish I could accommodate the world with their issues in life. Not quite possible with just little ol' me, so I choose to entertain in the form of a tome. Hopefully, what I write will spotlight this fact: In spite of, we are all people dealing with life the same. Just on different levels. My mother started the 65' Watts Riot, and the village that raised me were, lets just say, "Eclectic." So, the cards that I was dealt in life are different. And yet, I deal with them in similar fashion as everyone else.
TONIGHT CALL IN TO GIVE A THANKSGIVING SHOUT OUT with Boyd and Lucinda
A fixture on the pound-for-pound lists and a fan-favorite, Paul “The Punisher” Williams had an outstanding 41-2 record with 27 wins by knockout. Williams, a two-division titlist, became paralyzed from the waist down following a motorcycle accident in May 2012. Even after becoming a paraplegic from the accident, Williams maintained his signature smile and a great attitude. Recently, Williams connected with Team Fight to Walk co-founder Boyd Melson in New York City, where he helped Williams find speaking engagements. During their time together, Melson took Williams to Rutgers University to meet Dr. Wise Young. He showed Williams patients treated during clinical trials in China. Williams saw the patients walking following a surgical procedure that enabled their axons to regenerate. Young is planning to conduct the same trials next year in the United States. Amazed by what he saw, Williams immediately joined Team Fight to Walk. Both Williams and Boyd Melson will appear on the broadcast tonight to talk about boxing and Team Fight to Walk (www.teamfighttowalk.com). Rich, Tony, and Tom will also recap last week's combat sports news and events and preview the upcoming events.
