Today’s guest is Dr. Dan Siegel. Dr. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA with training in pediatrics and child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. He served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA, studying family interactions with an emphasis on how attachment experiences influence emotions, behavior, autobiographical memory and narrative.

In this episode you’ll learn:
  • How to define “mindsight”?
  • What is interpersonal neurobiology and how these two ideas relate to our human experience?
  • The difference between the “mind” and the brain.
  • How to recognize and acknowledge feelings and experiences without being consumed by them?
  • What role does media play in how we view the world?
  • Do we have an opportunity to shift the flow of information from a predominantly externally focused paradigm to one that helps us gain awareness of our own internal processes and attachments?

I have to say Dr. Siegel has such a beautifully articulate mind. This interview was such a pleasure for me.

Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks and have a great day!
