As we celebrate holidays with family, loved ones, and friends, may we reconnect with the deepest, truest parts of ourselves and the human experience. May we reaffirm the simple value of seeing, hearing, respecting, accepting and loving one another. May we call forth and share the best of who we are. Science and sages both say the practice of mindfulness can help us to do these things on a regular basis. Please accept my offering of this conversation with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Trudy Goodman.

Free Forum - JONATHAN GOTTSCHALL THE STORYTELLING ANIMAL: How Stories Make Us Human

(originally aired December 2012)

The late evolutionary biologist Steven Jay Gould called humans "the primate who tells stories..." And it's not just Gould. Anthropologists have found societies that have existed for millennia without the wheel, but they've never found one that doesn't tell stories. In fewer than 300 pages of THE STORYTELLING ANIMAL, JONATHAN GOTTSCHALL traces the cultural and scientific connections between story and the human brain, touching on nearly every facet of society long the way.
For humans, story is like gravity-it's this powerful and all-encompassing force that we hardly even notice because we are so used to it. But gravity is influencing us all the time, and story is too. Most of us think that our time in the provinces of storyland doesn't shape or change us. But research shows that story shapes humanity at the historical, cultural, and personal levels. Story isn't a frill in human life-something we do just for kicks. Story is a vastly powerful tool. By educating ourselves about story, we can use to learn that power in our own lives. -- Jonathan Gottschall

(originally aired April 2010)
In need of some good news, meet Father Gregory Boyle.
In 1998, Gregory Boyle founded Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention program in the United States. Serving 12,000 clients a year, 8,000 gang members from 700 different gangs, it offers wrap-around, comprehensive services to those for whom hope is rare. As of 2010, Boyle had buried 168 of his homies. He fills his first book TATTOOS ON THE HEART with their stories. I read it cover to cover on a plane flight and cried at least a dozen times. Father Boyle's compassion is boundless.
