Welcome to The Journey of Integration

An 8-Week Professional Training to Expand Your Awareness and Cultivate Well-Being

For most of us, our lives move between two polarities. Sometimes we go with the flow; we feel open, joyful, and connected. Sometimes we're stuck or chaotic; we feel tight, closed-off, frustrated, or anxious and out of control.

Why is this so? And what can we do about it?

According to Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, the answer is integration.

The Journey of Integration invites you to join the pioneering interpersonal neurobiologist for an eight-week intensive curriculum on using the power of consciousness to cultivate greater well-being in our lives.

Whether you're a therapist serving individuals and families, a classroom teacher, personal coach, corporate consultant, or a leader in your place of work or community, The Journey of Integration will show you how.

Harmony Is Our Natural State

Read more

As you may have discovered, life is complicated. We human beings are a highly complex system on both the individual and collective level—which can sometimes lead to chaos, sometimes to rigidity. Yet the approach to well-being may be simpler than you think.

The good news is that complex systems naturally tend toward harmony through a process of “self-organization” that is optimized with what Dr. Siegel calls “integration”—or “the linkage of differentiated parts.”

In The Journey of Integration, Dr. Siegel presents presents a step-by-step training course in this universal pathway of integration to cultivate healing and personal growth.

Joy, creativity, awe, gratitude, compassion, kindness—the qualities we cherish the most will naturally emerge when we drop beneath the illusion of separateness and realize our profound interconnection.

8 Weekly In-Depth Video Sessions with Dr. Daniel J. Siegel

SESSION 1: The Nature of Consciousness Monday, August 20, 2018

The first session in our course outlines key principles of interpersonal neurobiology and their implications in fields including psychotherapy, education, and business. In addition, Dr. Siegel discusses the means by which we can apply integration to the experience of consciousness itself. Session highlights:

  • What determines a “healthy” mind?
  • The nine domains of integration
  • The FACES of harmony: Flexibility, Adaptability, Coherence, Energy, and Stability
  • The origins of the Wheel of Awareness
  • Your “sixth sense” (an interior somatic reference for who you are) and your “eighth sense” (your relational self)

SESSION 2: The Wheel of Awareness Monday, August 27, 2018

Session Two presents an in-depth exploration of the Wheel of Awareness, the central awareness-training technique you will learn in The Journey of Integration. Dr. Siegel guides you through each step in the process, drawing on his experience in sharing this method with more than 10,000 people from all walks of life. Session highlights:

  • The monitoring and modifying aspect of the mind as a regulatory process
  • Stabilizing the mind through observation, objectivity, and openness
  • The experience of “open awareness”
  • Interoception—our capacity to sense our inner world
  • Sending wishes of kindness, care, compassion, and concern out into the world

SESSION 3: Integration and Your Subjective Experience Monday, September 3, 2018

Expanding on our work with the Wheel of Awareness in our previous session, we turn our focus in our third session to subjective experience and integration. Dr. Siegel tackles the fascinating question of how it is that our focused attention on something changes our subjective experience of it. Additionally, Dr. Siegel introduces the concept of “MWe”—a new term for our deep interconnection with others in an integration of our identity. Session highlights:

  • Non-judgment from the perspective of neuroscience
  • The possibility for choice and change
  • Our interconnection with others: only metaphoric or very real?
  • The three pillars of strengthening the mind—focused attention, open awareness, and compassion training
  • A deeper look at kindness

SESSION 4: The Mechanisms of the Mind Monday, September 10, 2018

Session Four continues our deep dive into the nature of awareness as Dr. Siegel discusses the integration of first-hand experiences, second-hand reports, and third-person objective mechanisms of the mind. He also shares an in-depth look at the nature of energy, and offers insights into creativity as an integration of our left and right brain, what happens in cases of impaired linkage and differentiation, and much more. Session highlights:

  • The five “CLIFF” features of energy—contour, location, intensity, frequency, and form
  • The insula and cingulate regions of the brain and how they function within our relationships
  • The concept of the embodied mind
  • Facets of attention: focal, non-focal, guided, pulled, and more
  • How self-awareness and consciousness itself are related to our social functions

SESSION 5: The Science of Being Aware Monday, September 17, 2018

Does the brain create the mind? Or is something much greater going on? Session Five reveals what science tells us about the nature of consciousness and of being aware. Dr. Siegel introduces various theories of the mind and awareness, discussing how to possibly bridge apparent contradictions between viewpoints. Session highlights:

  • Honoring the discovery of the neural correlates of consciousness
  • Integrated information theory and attention schema theory
  • The research into the effects of meditation and mindfulness practices
  • The quantum vacuum Dr. Siegel calls “the plane of possibility”
  • The mind as an emergent property of energy

SESSION 6: The Nature of Energy Monday, September 24, 2018

Session Six looks more closely at the nature of energy, with a particular focus on the energy of the mind. Dr. Siegel expands on the discussion of the mind as an emergent property of energy and the profound implications this has for those of us in the therapy or education fields. Session highlights:

  • Expanding our sense of identity beyond the individual body
  • Attention as a process that directs the flow of energy and information
  • Using the Wheel of Awareness to overcome developmental trauma and shame states
  • Dropping our “plateaus“—the self-limiting beliefs that restrict our potential
  • Rediscovering the richness of life

SESSION 7: Quantum Mind, Newtonian Body Monday, October 1, 2018

In Session Seven, Dr. Siegel takes on the difficult task of integrating Newtonian and quantum physics as we further our investigation into the nature of the mind and awareness—sharing practical insights into how to tie all of this into our work with clients, students, and others looking to cultivate greater well-being. Session highlights:

  • Developing a new relationship with the concept of time
  • Microstates vs. macrostates
  • The fascinating experience known as “awe” and its connection to integration
  • Love and joy as increasing states of integration—and fear, anger, and sadness as constrictions in integration
  • The health benefits of integration, including reduced inflammation, improved cardiovascular function, optimized immune function, and much more

SESSION 8: Our Integrated World Monday, October 8, 2018

Session Eight continues our investigation of quantum physics and the self-organizing aspect of the mind. Dr. Siegel also shares a hopeful vision of the far-reaching positive effects that integration can have in our personal and professional lives, as well as for our entire human family. Session highlights:

  • The phenomenon of entanglement
  • Moving from a culture of competition to cooperation
  • The urgency for integration on a global level
  • Changing organizational climate with the Wheel of Awareness
  • The ultimate goal for healing professionals—empowering your clients to access the plane of possibility and learn, live, love, and lead from this inner sanctuary available to each of us
