Mindfully Managing Depression and Managing the Monkey Mind with Dr. Stuart Eisendrath & Mark Coleman

Dr Stuart Eisendrath and Mark Coleman

It may seem improbable for us to change the world but, if we can do the inner work and bring peace to ourselves we individually add to the collective good. To find inner peace we must manage our negative thoughts and quiet our overstimulated minds. While it may be easier said than done, researchers are working to create mindfulness techniques that soothe and tame our monkey brain. To find out what alternative therapies exist to treat depression and ease suffering, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors who promote being in the present moment and practicing mindfulness to heal the mind. Dr. Stuart Eisendrath developed an alternative method to mindfully manage depression and Mark Coleman is a meditation teacher who founded the Mindfulness Institute where he guides students through mindfulness and meditation practices.
