Episode Notes

This special episode of The Glo Podcast features a talk given by Dr. Dan Siegel, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, at Glo HQ in Santa Monica just before the COVID-19 lockdown. Dr. Siegel gives an in-depth discussion on how to use The Wheel of Awareness, a useful meditation tool he developed with over two decades of clinical research studies. It’s a visual metaphor for how the mind works and a way to “expand the container of consciousness.”

Dr. Siegel has dedicated his work to challenging traditional ideas of the mind and the self. He breaks down misconceptions of these concepts to help us reach a new understanding of the human experience, which emphasizes our interconnectedness, unity, and the unequivocal importance of love.
