The extraordinary amount of control we have over our well-being is proven again and again in mindfulness research. Studies that include placebos are a prime example of this phenomenon. Why do some people experience pain relief after taking placebo medication? What is truly at play when people have the will to live?
To delve deeper into the mind-body connection, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with Ellen J. Langer PhD, a professor in Harvard’s Psychology department about our ability to create well-being for ourselves.
Dr. Ellen Langer, aka, Mother Mindfulness, is the author of twelve books including, The Mindful Body: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health. She shares examples of her revolutionary research that creates a convincing case that we are in charge of our health, healing, and well-being.
Widely known as “the mother of mindfulness,” Ellen J. Langer PhD is regarded as one of America’s most influential psychologists. Her new book, THE MINDFUL BODY: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health is the culmination of decades of revolutionary research that makes a convincing case to see mind and body as a single unit. This gives us enormous control over our health and well-being.
Dr. Ellen Langer is a professor in the Psychology Department at Harvard University, recipient of four distinguished scientist awards, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Liberty Science Genius award. Professor Langer has authored twelve books and hundreds of research articles.
