Seminar with Dr Dan Siegel

Dr Dan Siegel accepted our invitation as key note speaker at the Education of the Heart Expert Session on April 14. Dan joined me and other speakers to continue the conversation started in May last year at the Education of the Heart symposium with H.H. the Dalai Lama in Rotterdam. Dan explained how we can understand the mind in the context of optimal learning and development, integrating insights from neuro-science, psychology and education science. “mental health and development can best be understood as a process of the integration of consciousness, which by nature is embodied and inter-personal. The heart – and therefore the ‘education of the heart’ – can be understood as a metaphor for optimal learning”, explained Dan, for an audience of 100 educational experts at Avans Hogeschool in Den Bosch.
