Mind Science In Action: Weaving Compassion Into Our Way of Life with Dan Siegel, M.D., renowned neuropsychiatrist and author of Brainstorm.

In this lecture, Dr. Siegel shares with us some of the important ways that mindfulness practices can help us live better lives. He explains what happens to the brain when it starts to become more "integrated," a distinction that informs much of the work Dr. Siegel does in this area. By linking differentiated parts of the brain, people can become more integrated in general, actually using their minds to change their brains, which can help alleviate some of the negative effects of mental stress.

This fascinating look at what happens to the brain when it is observed by the mind is available as a package with the audio only as well as the video. Take some time to watch the video as you will want to see Dr. Siegel share his "handouts" with the live audience, but keep the audio on file as this will be a recording you will want to listen to again and again.
