Dr David Hamilton

 

Kindness has at last become a way of thinking, with celebrities promoting it as an antidote to some of the political and social problems of the world. In this workshop, you will learn about exciting new research that shows exactly how kindness impacts on your health, relationships and life: from the effect on your arteries, immune system and even mental health, to how it works as a relationship’s ‘secret ingredient’. If you ever wondered how to make a difference, you will discover the simple things you can do to set in motion a domino effect that can influence your social circle, community and even the world.

LEARN HOW KINDNESS:

  • Impacts your biology
  • Alters your brain network
  • May be the secret to lasting relationships
  • Counters the effects of stress on the body
  • Can alleviate depression
  • Plus learn two meditations for improved health

David Hamilton is author of nine books, including the bestseller ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness’ (Hay House, £10.99). A former scientist in the pharmaceutical industry, he writes and speaks on a range of topics that help us understand and harness the effects of our mind and emotions on health.
