Dacher and the GGSC are legit
These folks are studying highly underrated and understudied aspects of our human experience. This isn't a polyannish just think happy thoughts mumbo jumbo but high quality science. I'm so excited that this podcast exists and that I'll be able to share this excellent research with my clients. As a psychologist and teacher of mindfulness thank you for your work and dedication!
Glad I found this place
I signed up for the course on edX. I’m not being as regular at student inn as I would like, but everything I’m doing makes a difference. I’m enjoying the podcast too. All good stuff. Thank you for being here. I really really appreciate it.
Really Happy Now!
I have been waiting for a podcast just like this one for a very long time!
I very much enjoy the format of these podcasts; the two I’ve listened to thus far.
I first heard of the GGSC years ago when I watched the short videos by Christine Carter and Kelly Corrigan. I have been unable to afford the other classes you have offered. Finding this podcasts feels a bit like I striking gold! I am already looking to the next ones. Also, they are short and sweet. Perfect!
