An Unexpected Side Effect of Wisdom

Ron Siegel on What Studying Wisdom Can Teach Us

A few years ago, Ron Siegel hosted the Dalai Lama during a special therapy conference he helped organize. This visit inspired Ron to co-edit Wisdom and Compassion in Psychotherapy, a landmark book that integrates Eastern and Western perspectives on higher consciousness.

Ron’s specialty is a self-effacing, unadorned approach to spirituality. In our recent conversation, I asked him to give me the bottom line on the personal impact of his study of Eastern wisdom traditions. His answer was quick and delightfully honest. Listen to it and you’ll always have a simple question you can ask yourself to get back on track when you find your ego getting in your way.

Ron Siegel is just one of the six visionaries and innovators who will be exploring the practical, transformative power of wisdom in the consulting room in our all-new video webcast series, Today’s Wisdom: How It Can Transform Your Practice.

The series offers you an in-depth look at how to integrate the fruits of wisdom into your practice in concrete ways right now.

In addition to Ron, the series features Eugene Gendlin, Irv Yalom, Tara Brach, Mary Pipher, and Daniel Kahneman. I hope you will consider joining us as well. To learn more about this all-new webcast series, click here.

    Why can’t we purchase individual episodes from your different webcast series, if one particular talk or individual interests us? Or have I somehow missed that option?
