Dr. Daniel Siegel explores the neural mechanisms beneath social and emotional intelligence
and how these can be cultivated through reflective practices that focus on the inner nature
of the mind.
He talks about how we can train our kid’s minds and shape their brains properly, in order to have empathy and compassion and understand that we are all interconnected, we are not separate from other human beings.
We can change the patterns that have been engraved in our minds.The brain is the social organ of the body; therefore we have to take care of it. Reflection is an opportunity to realize that relationships are our lives blood and this is what gives us resilience not only as individuals but also as a collective community.
“When we train our kids brains, we deliver in education an integrated brain, and what we would have then is a child who honors the way that the mind is important, that the circuitry of compassion has been developed, that the relationship, the brain, and the mind become a triangle embedded in the child synaptic connections.
So they realize that they are part of the larger whole, they feel attune to themselves, they feel committed and responsible for others, and they go forward in life with the synaptic circuitry that allows them to feel connected, to have a sense of equanimity, to have wisdom and a sense of responsibility for all living beings on this planet.”
