A new framework for maintaining mental health and well-being.

From the author of the internationally-acclaimed best-selling text The Developing Mind, and esteemed leader and educator in the field of mental health, comes the first book ever to integrate neuroscience research with the ancient art of mindfulness. The result is a groundbreaking approach to not simply mental health, but life in general, which shows readers how personal awareness and attunement can actually stimulate emotional circuits in the brain, leading to a host of physiological benefits, including greater well-being, resilience, emotional balance, and improved cardiac and immune function. For clinicians and laypeople alike, Siegel’s illuminating discussions of the power of the focused mind provide a wealth of ideas that can transform our lives and deepen our connections with others, and with ourselves.

User Review  - Kk - Goodreads

If you ever wondered about the meditation, but also needed some scientific evidence that this is "legit", if you do or want to believe that we do have real power to heal and to change ourselves, this is an inspiration. Read full review

Review: The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being

User Review  - AJ Armstrong - Goodreads

A book on mindfulness and neurobiology by someone clearly disqualified by both temperament and expertise to discuss either. Pseudoscientific, massive confirmation bias issues, wishful and magical thinking. Execrable twaddle. Read full review
