Dan Siegel - Are we our mind?Published on Nov 28, 2013
Daniel J. Siegel is a respected global neuroscientist, professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute which offers development for individuals and groups focused on exploring the links between mind, human relationships and basic neurobiological processes. He has published extensively on psychotherapy and children's psychology.
What made Dr. Siegel attractive for us was his unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting for the general public. His book Mindsight offers the general reader an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. He has been invited to lecture for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, TED and TEDx.
