Dr. Rick Hanson and Forrest Hanson explore the practical science of lasting well-being, and teach you how to build reliable inner strengths, overcome your challenges, and get the most out of life. New conversations every Monday.
Connecting With Your True Nature
Today we’re exploring how we can get back in touch with the person we were when we were young. And, alongside that, how we can rediscover our “true nature:” who we were before the world got in the way.
Fierce Compassion with Dr. Kristin Neff
People generally think of self-compassion as a "soft" emotion that helps us comfort, reassure, and nurture ourselves. Today a pioneer in the field of compassion research, Dr. Kristin Neff, joins the show to explore the fierce side of self-compassion, including how it can help us draw healthy boundaries, take necessary action, and stand against injustice.

Dealing with Life's Disruptions

Meeting Your Internal Family with Susan McConnell
We usually experience ourselves as being one "self," but we all have different characters, different "parts," running around inside our heads. And our relationship with some parts is better than others. Today's guest, Susan McConnell, joins Forrest to explore Somatic Internal Family Systems, a powerful form of therapy that helps us bring those parts together as a unified self.
