Playtime: 4 minutes, 2 seconds

In this excerpt from a talk given at Shambhala Pittsburgh, Carol S. Hyman responds to a question from the audience about how to not get bombarded at a new job. She reminds us that we can’t control the things that people and life throw at us, but through mindfulness we can learn to control our reaction. Carol advocates for the stop, drop and roll method. She also discusses the gap that exists between stimulus and response.
