Overview

Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation by Daniel J. Siegel

Foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence.

This groundbreaking book, from one of the global innovators in the integration of brain science with psychotherapy, offers an extraordinary guide to the practice of “mindsight,” the potent skill that is the basis for both emotional and social intelligence. From anxiety to depression and feelings of shame and inadequacy, from mood swings to addictions, OCD, and traumatic memories, most of us have a mental “trap” that causes recurring conflict in our lives and relationships. Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, shows us how to use mindsight to escape these traps. Through his synthesis of a broad range of scientific research with applications to everyday life, Dr. Siegel has developed novel approaches that have helped hundreds of patients free themselves from obstacles blocking their happiness. By cultivating mindsight, all of us can effect positive, lasting changes in our brains—and our lives. A book as inspiring as it is profound, Mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential.

Through awareness of how the brain works and awareness of our behaviors, we open ourselves up to personal growth and change. By awareness of the phisology impacting our emotional triggers, we can literally change the architecture of our brains. The author Dan Siegel combines western neuroscience with eastern philosophy of mediation, presenting the ideas that through attention, brain science, and mindfulness can literally change the way the brain functions. The book is presented in snippets of chapters and sub-headings to give myself easy places to stop and take food for thought.

Excellent book for advanced or beginners interested in the workings of the mind and the healing that can occur through practices directly related to brain function. Excellent popular explanation of differences and interrelatedness of brain stem, limbic regions and cortex. Highly recommend.

I really enjoyed reading this book and loved the way Daniel was able to bring the science of the mind into a perspective that is easy to understand and visualize.

Dr. Daniel Siegel offers an accessible review of the brain using the most current and ground-breaking scientific research today. He is a master storyteller combined with decades of psychiatric, pediatric, and medical experience. This book has helped me in my own work as a grief counselor. I highly recommend this work as well as The Whole-brain Child. Excellent!
