MIND: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human with Dr. Dan Siegel

Join noted neuropsychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author for a lecture on his new book, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human. Neuroscience is the study of the brain, but what can it tell us about the mind? Doesn’t the brain just create the mind? And why should we care anyway about what “the mind” is and where it comes from – aren’t these questions for philosophers? Siegel’s characteristic sensitivity and wide-ranging intellect get to the essence of how we can know who we really are. The story he tells goes beyond explaining how neurons fire to establish a working definition of the human mind. His exciting narrative of science and art shows how humans can cultivate well-being in their own lives and communities by understanding their own minds. This book is a combination of science and human experience at its best, and empowers readers who want to explore the foundations of their selves – their mind and hearts.
