This episode is with Dan Siegel who talks about his new book Aware – The Science and Practice of Presence and how quantum physics is helping us understand ourselves.

Mind : A Journey to the Heart of Being Human

Our special guest is Dan Siegel, M.D., who many will know as one of the pioneers of interpersonal neurobiology. We discuss his new book, Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence (TarcherPerigee), that is out now, worldwide. The conversation covers a lot of ground from how the book got its title, his practice, the Wheel of Awareness, and an in-depth look at the science that underlies his work. We spend a little time discussing how we can engage an understanding of the science of quantum physics in something as human as our human experience of kindness and love.

Our conversation was so fascinating that it occupies most of the podcast, but we will get to some of the fascinating questions you are sending in. You can also open a conversation in the comments section below. For connection to occur we need to take an action – just like the action potential of a neuron.

Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence – The Groundbreaking Meditation Practice

This groundbreaking new book from New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., introduces readers to his pioneering, science-based meditation practice.

Aware provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one’s day-to-day life.

An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation’s effectiveness, this book teaches readers how to harness the power of the principle “Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.” Siegel reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice to focus attention, open awareness, and cultivate kind intention can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in your life.

Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focused and present, as well as more energized and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.
