Brilliant short video by Dr Gabor Mate

Dr. Gabor Mate is one of my heroes – you can easily find out more about him on Youtube or by reading one of his books.

On Youtube however there are a dizzying number of videos which vary enormously in how well they are produced. Here on Soul Foods I will try to pick out some of the key ones so that if you are new to Dr Mate’s life and work.

As to books, ‘When the Body says No‘ might be a good one to start with.

This key Mate video only 5 mins is about how  we get alienated from f key areas of our lives; How Culture Makes Us Feel Lost – Dr. Gabor Maté ‘On Finding Your True Self Again’

Thanks to Pursuit of Wonder.  The Youtube notes say;

Dr. Gabor Maté gives a beautiful speech on human nature and the implications culture has on our ability to maintain it. In this segment of the speech, he discusses four different categories of self-alienation, and provides a sentiment of hope to stay in touch with our true nature as we move forward through the challenging times of modern culture. This video is transformative in nature and is intended for educational purposes. Therefore, it falls under fair use.
