A world expert on empathy, Tania Singer explores how improved cognitive and mental skills foster stability of mind, open hearts and encourage cooperation. After a short talk on the neurobiological basis of compassion, she'll leads a special DLD workshop based on her freely downloadable multi-media eBook "Compassion. Bridging Science and Practice." Developed through a cooperative effort of neuroscientists, therapists, contemplative scholars and monks, the book describes a variety of secular mental training programs, their use in education, clinical settings and for everyday life, as well as scientific findings on the resulting changes of brain, health and general well-being. She'll also present the ReSource Project, a unique one-year program blending Eastern and Western methods of mental training. Over a period of nine months, 200 participants practice exercises designed to enhance attentional control, body- and self-awareness, healthy emotion regulation, self-care, compassion, empathy, and perspective-taking. Participants meditate each day, attend weekly sessions with teachers and are tested at regular intervals. The aim of the training is to improve mental health and clarity, reduce stress and increase understanding of others' views, values and actions. DLD (Digital-Life-Design) is a global network on innovation, digitization, science and culture which connects business, creative and social leaders, opinion-formers and influencers for crossover conversation and inspiration.
