As early as 1871, Charles Darwin argued that sympathy is our strongest instinct. Today, "kindness scientist" Dacher Keltner and his team at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley, are proving that kindness is biological - it is a part of human nature. And, that kindness and compassion makes you happier and healthier!

    I enjoyed learning about the connection between compassion and oxytocin. It makes sense to me and I hope that others can increase their level of compassion and happiness by learning this.
