If you want to understand the long term cost of not repairing a rupture, Dan Siegel, who coined the term interpersonal neurobiology, is about to illuminate your mind. 

We discuss how we human beings operate when our “minds” and hearts come together, trauma, and how to fight off disease with presence. 

This episode is powerful.

It’s for the science nerds and relationship geeks who want to better understand the human nervous system, mindfulness, and even trauma.
