The Reality of Intraconnection: Dispelling the Lethal Lie of the Separate Self with Dan Siegel M.D.

The Garrison Institute Fellowship Forum is a series of conversations with extraordinary leaders with expertise and experience in awareness-based contemplative wisdom, the science of interconnection, generative action, and collective healing. Each conversation will be co-facilitated by the Garrison Institute Fellows and Fellowship Director Dr. Angel Acosta.

Audience members will have a front seat to a compelling discussion and have the opportunity to engage in the dialogue by asking direct questions and participating in small group breakout sessions. These gatherings will be a rich and inspiring opportunity to hear updates on the GI Fellowship, while also joining a community of people who are interested in exploring the aforementioned topics.

For this upcoming Fellowship Forum, we invite Dr. Dan Siegel to join us for a conversation on his work in the field of interpersonal neurobiology. We will dive deep into his concepts of “MWe,” intraconnection and dispelling the lie of the separate self.

This forum will be a live meeting, which will be conducted on Zoom at 3pm ET on Thursday, February 18th. The meeting link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of your registration. Registration will close one hour before the event.

Teachers:

For the last decade, Dr. Angel Acosta has worked to bridge the fields of leadership, social justice, and mindfulness. He holds a doctorate degree in curriculum and teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University. Acosta has supported more than educational leaders and their students by facilitating leadership trainings, creating pathways to higher education, and designing dynamic learning experiences. His dissertation explored healing-centered education as a promising framework for educational leadership development. After participating in the Mind and Life Institute’s Academy for Contemplative Leadership, Acosta began consulting and developing learning experiences that weave leadership development with conversations about inequality and healing, to support educational leaders through contemplative and restorative practices. As a former trustee for the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, he participated as a speaker and discussant at the Asia Pacific Forum on Holistic Education in Kyoto, Japan. He continues to consult for organizations like the NYC Department of Education, UNICEF, Columbia University and others. Over the last couple of years, he has designed the Contemplating 400 Years of Inequality Experience–a contemplative journey to understand structural inequality. He’s a proud member of the 400 Years of Inequality Project, based at the New School.

He serves as the Medical Director of the LifeSpan Learning Institute and on the Advisory Board of the Blue School in New York City, which has built its curriculum around Dr. Siegel’s Mindsight approach.
