Abstract

How can we learn to love again? To act with empathy instead of anger? To change unpleasant or even hateful feelings towards persons who may be viewed as outgroups? For example, people from black and ethnic minorities, older people, those who are gay or lesbian, or people with mental illness? How can we learn to approach these people with compassion instead of avoiding them or discriminating against them?
