The Power of Awareness: The Science and Practice of Presence

Dr. Siegel’s workshop will address the neuro-biological evidence of the health benefits of
presence.  He will explore how focusing the mind on the present moment, the “now” moment, fosters a form of “internal attunement” that stimulates the activity and then the growth of the self-regulating fibers of the brain.  The growth of these neural regions enables enhanced
empathy, self-understanding, emotional regulation, and also improved physiological functions.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn the “integration of consciousness practice” called the Wheel of Awareness
  • Be given tools for cultivating open awareness
  • Practice focused attention
  • Reveal the power of kind intention
