Integrative Journey into the Mind with Dan Siegel, M.D. at UCLA. Join interpersonal neurobiology pioneer Dr. Dan Siegel on his adventures bridging science and contemplative practice. Interpersonal neurobiology is an approach to the mind that explores how our relationships with other people, and the planet, interact with our neural circuitry to give rise to our mental experiences.
One of the fascinating findings from this approach is that virtually all academic fields, including that of mental health, do not have a definition of the mind. Dan has surveyed over 100,000 therapists, and
nearly 5,000 educators, and has found that over 95% of these professionals have never had even a single lecture on what the mind is. A more positive finding from his exploration is that it is not
only possible to offer a definition of the mind, but that we can actually provide a working definition of a healthy mind.
This presentation will explore these fundamental ideas through engaging discussions and illuminating inner experiences that may expand your mind, integrate your brain, and deepen your relationships
with others, and yourself.
Attendees will receive a copy of Dr. Dan Seigel’s book Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology: An Integrative Handbook of the Mind (W. W. Norton & Company, April 2012)
