Professor Richard Davidson is a leading neuroscience, probably best known for his work with the Dalai Lama and his study of the neuroscience behind meditation and mindfulness. There is a profound and radical conclusion from his work: well-being is a skill that can be intentionally trained, just like any other learned skill.
In this video he explains the four constituents of well-being, all of which have known brain circuits underpinning them. Research by Davidson and others demonstrates that all these brain circuits are plastic, which means that they can grow and change in time (and often surprisingly little time), and that intentional practice is key to this neuroplasticity.

There information on his research, his books and The Healthy Minds Programme App. The ground-breaking Healthy Minds Program uses neuroscience, contemplative traditions, and skill-based learning methods to help you develop the skills for a healthy mind
