goodtrue& beautiful (3)

Dr. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and recipient of several honorary fellowships. Dr. Siegel is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization, which offers online learning and in-person seminars that focus on how the development of mindsight in individuals, families and communities can be enhanced by examining the interface of human relationships and basic biological processes.

Dr. Siegel’s unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting and accessible has led him to be invited to address diverse local, national and international groups including mental health professionals, neuroscientists, corporate leaders, educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, mediators, judges, and clergy. He has lectured for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, and London’s Royal Society of Arts (RSA).

In this episode, we discuss his New York Times bestseller Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence (Tarcher/Perigee, 2018) that provides practical instructions for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one’s day-to-day life.

Phileena Heuertz is one of my favorite voices in the contemplative space today. In short, she and her husband, Chris Heuertz, have both been very pivotal in my spiritual journey and walk into the practices of contemplation over the last couple years.

She joins us in this latest episode as we discuss her memoir, Pilgrimage of a Soul. You’ll hear in this interview that it is a beautiful reflection on her story into awareness and awakening of the true self.
