We will dive deeply into the nature of subjective experience, consciousness, and information processing—and also explore how another facet of mind can be seen as the “self-organizing emergent, embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information.” This definition enables us to propose that the mind is fully embodied, not limited to the head’s brain. The mind is not even limited by the skin, because it is also relational—involving our connections to other people and the planet. Further, defining the mind as a regulatory process means you can learn to strengthen the monitoring and modulation that make up regulation.
This exploration will empower us to ask how one cultivates optimal self-organization and to understand how the linking of differentiated parts of a system to each other—a process called “integration”—creates flexible, adaptive, coherent, energized, and stable functioning. This “FACES” flow emerging with integration can be seen as the heart of health.
