  • What is Mindsight?

    In the following interview, Dr. Dan Siegel discusses and defines the fundamental theory of Mindsight as a way to focus the mind on the nature of the internal world.

A common question we ask ourselves is, “can people really change?” The simple answer to this question is yes. People can develop themselves throughout their lifetime. Mindfulness practices have been scientifically linked to real, positive changes in people’s emotional and physical selves. Studies in neuroscience have even shown us that by adopting mindfulness practices, people can physically change the structure of their brains, building connections, changing neuropathways and growing new synapses. Neuroscience describes the study of the structure or function of the nervous system and brain. This section will shed light on the mind-body connection as well as our ability to develop and grow by cultivating mindfulness. Here we explore the many ways mindfulness can positively influence our brains, our relationships, our daily experiences and our overall lives.
