Three human experiences have been documented as promoting well-being: secure attachment, mindfulness meditation, and effective psychotherapy. In his first professional book since the publication of The Developing Mind in 1999, leading neurobiologist Daniel Siegel presents a unifying theory that shows how being mindfully aware and attending to the richness of our experience, creates scientifically recognized enhancements in our physiology, our mental functions, and our interpersonal relationships. Being fully present in our awareness opens our lives to new possibilities of well-being. In this new book, Siegel uses theory, science, and anecdote in order to reveal how to transform the brain as well as promote well-being and emotional balance within everyday life as well as within psychotherapy.
