Daniel Siegel explores the nature of how our experience of what we call “self” emerges across the lifespan. How do we build an inclusive understanding of self in relation to others that promotes well-being?
Dr. Daniel J. Siegel’s new book, Intraconnected: MWe (Me & We) as the Integration of Self, Identity and Belonging combines personal reflections with scientific discussions of how the mind, brain and our relationships shape who we are.
Our culture may give us a message of separation as a solo, isolated self, Dr. Siegel says, but a wider perspective unveils that who we are may be something more—broader than the brain, bigger even than the body—and fundamental to social systems and the natural world.
Daniel J. Siegel, MD, is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, and executive director of the Mindsight Institute. He is the founding editor of Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and best-selling author of Awake, Mind, The Mindful Therapist, and The Mindful Brain.
“In this personally engaging and philosophically illuminating work, Dr. Dan Siegel takes his unique explorations of the human experience of self and mind to a yet deeper level… Eloquently and expertly, he guides us back towards our true nature: intra- and inter-being with all others and all that is.”
—Gabor Maté, MD, author of The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness and Healing in a Toxic Culture
