At my other website, I’m starting a new series called The Compassion Interviews, where I interview some of the most compassionate people I can find.
The series kicks off with Dr. James Doty, founder and director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University.
In this interview we discuss:
- Why compassion is more important than money
- What it is like to be in close contact with His Holiness the Dalai Lama
- How transcending socially conditioned roles can save the world
- What we can do today and everyday to cultivate peace, compassion, and happiness in our lives
I’ve included a short excerpt from the interview below that discusses how losing 70 million dollars during the dotcom crash, then taking a company public for 1.3 billion dollars of which he donated all of his shares to charity were two of the best things that ever happened to Dr. Doty.
