Science of Transformation

IONS: Institute of Noetic Sciences

by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.

How can we understand transformation in a scientific way? We could start by understanding the mind. The “mind” can be defined as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information. So how would you regulate the mind? By developing the ability to see mental activity with more clarity and then modify it with more effectiveness. Dr. Daniel Siegel calls this ability “Mindsight” and says there’s something about being able to see and influence your internal world that creates more health. In this interview, Dr. Siegel will describe how mindfulness techniques are one way to monitor and modify our internal states and create integration, thus facilitating transformation into better states of health. This recording was produced by the Institute of Noetic Sciences, which features the largest web library on conscious change. For more information, visit
