Course Description

Mindsight is a technique that was developed by Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, who is a pioneer in the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology.

Dr. Siegel has used scientific research from various fields, from psychology to attachment theory, in order to develop new insights and approaches that help people heal themselves from past traumas and overcome present obstacles.

The Mindsight technique is based in science and practicing the techniques gives you the power to change the way that your mind works for the better.

Begin Implementing the Mindsight Approach to Personal Transformation

  • Discover the Four Streams of Awareness
  • Implement the Wheel of Awareness Practice
  • Explore the Eight Domains of Integration
  • Use Mindsight to Change Your Mind and Brain

Release Old Mental Habits and Traumas to Enhance Your Present Moments
In this course, you’ll deeply explore, in a practical way, how you can promote integration between brain and mind.

As you implement this Mindsight practice in your daily life, you’ll begin to shift the physical structure of the brain and improve the way that your mind works.

Ultimately, you’ll enhance your relationship with yourself and with others.

You’ll also develop resilience, release fear, and focus on the positive aspects of your life from one moment to the next.

Contents and Overview
You’ll start this course with an introduction into the Eight Domains of Integration and the Four Streams of Awareness.

These lectures will allow you to fully understand how you can use mindfulness practice in a whole new way to transform your mind in the present while releasing past traumas.

When ready, you’ll try the Wheel of Awareness practice, which is a mindfulness meditation that focuses on the breath and brings you into the present. This is a tool you can use daily to transform your mind.

Then you’ll move through each of the domains of integration so you can fully understand how to begin using them to change the mind and brain.

You’ll also discover how to enhance neuroplasticity in the brain through exercise, sleep, healthy eating, supplementation, and meditation that intensely focuses your attention.

Once you understand how the left and right brain are connected and how they are different, you’ll cover what memory is and how it also affects the brain.

Dr. Siegel helps you further comprehend the way the mind works by delving into how subjective experience and neural firing are connected yet separate, how to use Mindsight to improve relationships, and how time affects the mind.    

By the time you complete this course, you’ll know how to apply these scientific lessons to actually create healing with yourself or others.

You’ll be able to recognize the lessons of the past, be open to the present, and chart your future with a mind that’s clear, healthy, and positive

Sounds True, Publisher of book, audio, and video titles in the fields of self-development, personal growth, and spirituality

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out as a project with one woman and her tape recorder, we have grown into a multimedia publishing company with more than 80 employees, a library of more than 600 titles featuring some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time, and an ever-expanding family of customers from across the world. In more than two decades of growth, change, and evolution, Sounds True has maintained its focus on its overriding purpose, as summed up in our Vision Statement:

Sounds True exists to inspire, support, and serve personal transformation and spiritual awakening.

Sounds True is an independent multimedia publishing company that embraces the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities, embodied by the leading authors, teachers, and visionary artists of our time. Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology—rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential "living wisdom" of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher. It is our goal to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.

Throughout the years, Sounds True has developed a guiding philosophy that we call "multiple bottom lines." Our dedication to this principle is embodied in our Mission Statement:

The mission of Sounds True is to find teachers and artists who serve as a gateway to spiritual awakening and to produce, publish, and distribute their work with beauty, intelligence, and integrity. We treat our authors, vendors, and partners in the same way we would want to be treated. We work flexibly and efficiently together to create a cooperative, loving environment that honors respectful authenticity and individual growth. We maintain a healthy level of profitability so that we are an independent and sustainable employee-owned organization.

The three essential bottom lines for Sounds True are the integrity of our purpose, the well-being of our people, and the maintaining of healthy profits. All three of these priorities are important in the decisions we make as a company. It is our conviction that each of these bottom lines must be healthy for the company to prosper as a whole.

In our history as a publisher, Sounds True has produced a wide variety of formats in order to fulfill our goal of disseminating spiritual wisdom.
