Tara Brach - Awakening from the Trance of Blame

The habit of blame is at the very core of what separates us from ourselves and blocks true intimacy with others. It is also the root of violence and war. This talk looks at the evolutionary, cultural and familial drivers of the trance of blame, and introduces a mindfulness- based practice that releases its grip. The gift of letting go is a forgiving heart, and the freedom to love without holding back.


Dan Siegel - Parental Presence, The Mindful Brain, and Integrating Relationships to Cultivate Secure Attachment and Well-Being

Defining mind as an ‘embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information’ allows us to more fully understanding the mind and then how to cultivate a healthy mind through the process of various forms of integration that create vitality, connection and meaning in our lives.
