Jeffrey Siegel – Mindfulness and Post Traumatic Growth

A graduate of Harvard and Emory University, Jeffrey Siegel has studied neuroscience, education, mindfulness, and physical fitness. His work has led to help people make personal transformations in their life.

Jeff was first exposed to mindfulness in college, where he walked into a free session offered by the university. In his mindfulness practice, Jeff describes moments of having an incredible sense of wholeness, peacefulness, trust in self. He explains that the more you practice, the more you have the opportunity to experience it. He describes it as “Getting away from the background chatter. The white noise of our own mind just sort of calms down.” Jeff continued to explain that it is the experience is like feeling completely renewed, almost like a vacation, massage, or retreat.
