Gregg Krech, founder of the To-Do Institute joins us to discuss the Japanese art of self reflection
Learning to put yourself in someone else’s shoes
How emotions color our perceptions
Reflecting without our emotional coloring
Interpersonal skills that are an important part of character education
Three questions to ask about people in your lives
Co-existing with your internal experiences and feelings
Incorporating a self-reflective practice into life
Evil is in the inability to put ourselves in another person’s shoes
What we don’t see is many people setting aside a weekly practice of self reflection
If we look at mental health as a skill that can be learned, we can get out of the model that it’s something that’s part of us.
