The Compassion Interviews: Dr. Dan Siegel

Dr. Dan Siegel, professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine, has given 4 TedTalks, authored the NY Times best-seller Brainstorm, and pioneered the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology.

In this interview, we discuss:

  • How compassion and kindness are as important to the brain as the breath is to life
  • How parenting can lead us towards self-compassion and receptivity as opposed to reactivity
  • How being honest and present in whatever is happening is good for ourselves and the world
  • How we can break the vicious cycle of a lack of compassion in men.
  • How compassion can help us embrace the uncertainty of living in the moment
  • Where and why Dr. Siegel gives away for free awareness and compassion practices–

If you don’t already know who Dan Siegel is, I suggest checking out his website:

  1. So cool you’re doing this Kozo! Thank you and Namaste _/l\_

  2. I wasn’t familiar with Dr. Siegel. I’ll have to check out his site.

  3. This is wonderful, Kozo. I actually carved some time out just so I could sit and listen to what you both had to say.
    Dr. Dan seems like such an amazing person full of intelligence & empathy.

    I can’t wait to watch this, Kozo. I can’t comment and watch at the same time because it cuts out on me 😀
