Overview

A new framework for maintaining mental health and well-being.
From the author of the internationally-acclaimed best-selling text The Developing Mind, and esteemed leader and educator in the field of mental health, comes the first book ever to integrate neuroscience research with the ancient art of mindfulness. The result is a groundbreaking approach to not simply mental health, but life in general, which shows readers how personal awareness and attunement can actually stimulate emotional circuits in the brain, leading to a host of physiological benefits, including greater well-being, resilience, emotional balance, and improved cardiac and immune function. For clinicians and laypeople alike, Siegel’s illuminating discussions of the power of the focused mind provide a wealth of ideas that can transform our lives and deepen our connections with others, and with ourselves.

Editorial Reviews

Scientific American Mind
“Siegel has both a meticulous understanding of the roles of different parts of the brain and an intimate relationship with mindfulness. . . . [I]nsightful proposals, bolstered by preliminary research data, for how mindful awareness might engage parts of the brain in novel ways and lead to permanent neurological changes. His speculations are interesting in and of themselves, and they also may provide neuroscientists with ideas for experiments that could test the effects of mindfulness on the brain. . . . [A]n exciting glimpse of into an uncharted territory of neuroscience.”
American Journal of Psychiatry
“[A] rich and illuminating exploration of what it means to live in the here-and-now, to be fully present in the moment, to be 'mindfully aware.' . . . . [I]n-depth as well as life changing. . . . [T]he ideas in this book will both enrich one's own mindfulness practice and enhance one's therapeutic skills.”
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
“[E]xtremely informative and helpful, providing deep insights into the process of mindful awareness….timely and useful.”
