Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) is a radically interdisciplinary and groundbreaking field developed by neuropsychiatrist Dr. Dan Siegel that presents us with a scientifically grounded view of the mind, human development, relationships and experience. We are living in a moment in human history—the anthropocene—where everything about this beautiful planet that we live on is being drastically impacted by the human mind. The unconsciousness surrounding our collective traumatic history of structural, physical, and emotional violence has brought us to a tipping point, where we must as a species learn how to re-imagine the very meaning of resilient and compassionate relationships in order to move beyond the geopolitics of survival into a sustainable and Beloved Community.
In this talk, Dr. Sará King discusses the research she conducted at UCLA on yoga, mindfulness and resilience as they relate to trauma and the work of social justice with youth. Moreover, she explains the work she has been conducting with her mentor, Dan Siegel, to understand how (IPNB) has deep social justice implications for how we understand and bring about Beloved Community.
Additionally, Dr. King leads a brief guided meditation practice with the intention of bringing participants into an embodied experience of “MWe”—Dan Siegel’s new framework for shifting our understanding of what it is to have a “self”, in a way that illuminates the ways in which we can get in touch with our inter-generational and ancestral resources for healing through the power of mindful relationships.
