Summary
Combines the central concepts of the Dalai Lama, empirical evidence that supports them, and true stories of people who are putting his ideas into action--showing how harnessing positive energies and directing them outward has lasting and meaningful effects. Goleman details the science of compassion and how this singular guiding motivation has the power to: break such destructive social forces as corruption, collusion, and bias; heal the planet by refocusing our concerns toward our impact on the systems that support all life; reverse the tendency toward systemic inequity through transparency and accountability; replace violence with dialogue; counter us-and-them thinking by recognizing human oneness; create new economic systems that work for everyone, not just the powerful and rich; design schooling that teaches empathy, self-mastery, and ethics
