Naropa University’s Radical Compassion Symposium Presents “Mindsight and Neural Integration: How Kindness and Compassion Shape Our Relationships and Our Brains” with Dan Siegel, MD
Dr. Dan Siegel offers insights from the field of interpersonal neurobiology and discusses the power of mindsight to promote compassion, kindness and well-being in our personal lives, our relationships and our communities. “Mindsight” is the ability to perceive our own mind, and that of others, thus freeing us from habitual, reactive patterns. At the neurological level, mindsight has been shown to promote the growth of integrative fibers in the brain. Neural integration – the linkage between differentiated aspects of the brain – allows for flexibility and adaptability, and expresses itself outwardly as harmony, kindness and compassion. Dr. Siegel will share principles and practices that offer a bridge between the science of relationships and the brain and contemplative and spiritual traditions. More at www.naropa.edu.
