Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence with Dr. Dan Siegel

Listen in as Michelle explores the practice of presence with Dr. Dan Siegel along with its many positive effects on the parent child relationship. Dan’s latest book is titled Aware: The Science and Practice Presence 

Aware provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one’s day-to-day life.

An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation’s effectiveness, this book teaches readers how to harness the power of the principle “Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.” Siegel reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice to focus attention, open awareness, and cultivate kind intention can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in your life.

Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focused and present, as well as more energized and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.

Mindful Rituals at Home

I recently hosted the Mindful Schools summer program, and the topic was “Mindful Rituals at Home”. Join me here for a short video introduction, an offer to set an intention this summer, and a 10 minute meditation….

With life, work, kids, and more vying for your attention, it’s helpful to embed mindful rituals at home and throughout the day to remind yourself to come back to the moment. I invite you to watch my talk about weaving mindful rituals into your daily life. If you’re completely new to mindfulness, you might want to check out this Introduction to Mindfulness article first.

Setting an Intention

This week, set an intention to notice places and times where you might want to incorporate mindfulness into your day, come up with an idea for a ritual, and try it out.

Let me know how it goes!
