Mindful Reset: Altruism: Promoting someone else's welfare

Mindful Reset: Altruism: Promoting someone else's welfare | Pittsburgh

About this event

Altruism is when we act to promote someone else’s welfare, even at a risk or cost to ourselves.

Though some believe that humans are fundamentally self-interested, recent research suggests otherwise: Studies have found that people’s first impulse is to cooperate rather than compete.

This does not mean that humans are more altruistic than selfish; instead, evidence suggests we have deeply ingrained tendencies to act in either direction. Our challenge lies in finding ways to evoke the better angels of our nature.

Join us to dive deep into the science behind Altruism and how this concept can help us reset for a happier 2021.
