Taking Time In

presented by Dr. Dan Siegel

May 26, 2011

Studies of physical health, emotional well-being, longevity, happiness, and even wisdom suggest that our ability to be aware of our own internal world and feel deeply connected to others is at the heart of both resilience and mental health. In this talk, Dr. Siegel explains that this ability to see the mind, or to have "mindsight," is a learnable skill that stabilizes the lens through which we come to sense our feelings, thoughts, and memories. He further explains how "taking time in" can help one develop mindsight, which promotes more meaningful and empathetic relationships, an integrated and flexible brain, and a coherent and resilient mind.

The Mind, Brain, and Relationships: Integration as a Key to Mental Health

Keynote by Dr. Dan Siegel

March 23, 2010

In this keynote address on integrative mental health, Dan Siegel offers an overview of the process of integration as the mechanism underlying well-being in our bodies and in our relationships. Without integration, chaos and rigidity result. With the linkage of differentiated elements of a system--in the body or in our connections to others and the planet itself--we move toward integration. The result of integration is harmony. The mind can be harnessed to regulate energy and information flow in our bodies and in our relationships toward integration and create mental health.
