    Inspiring session, knees out due to arthritis, seriously thinking about juggling – never entered my mind until now(forget chess and bridge)and my 0 to 5 clients will totally love it. Thank you for a fun hour.

    It really was a fun hour. So motivated to keep doing some of the things that I considered JUST fun. WHat a compliment the other day, when a teen said that I “am rocking being almost 60″. I didn’t realize that wisdom had found fruition, and it doesn’t feel like work. (Well maybe the exercise part still is!)THANKS!

    This presentation was quite inspiring and indeed fun.

    But for me it seems that the benefits from your presentation and work is more directly seen as a welcome important reminder to keep taking good care of myself (i.e. going back to my tai-chi group for instance, which I have been practicing for years but have interrupted to spend more time to the gym…). But I missed the specific fleshing out of how these notions and practices actually might become integrated into my work as a psychotherapis.

    Dr. Siegel seems closer to my immediate professional needs and challenges as a therapist.

    The presentation also exacerbated my dilemma of finding a balance between “practicing psychotherapy” as best I can versus transforming myself into some kind of specialized “lifebrainhealth” coach…

    I have a sense (perhaps wrongly) that by spending a significant portion of session time on the details of “healthy mindbrain living” with my patients, following them up on their progress, etc. that I will not be able to focus also, or as carefully on the unique aspects of our trade, i.e. “psychotherapy”.

    Further, we all know the challenges of dealing with “resistances to do what is good for us”. And that “just do it” and scientific evidence tells us…etc, will not suffice.

    And is it not possible that this emerging trend in the long run, would develop to become a specialty kind of treatment?
    I know this may sound like falling into the trap of dualism, but practically, I cannot pretend offer “everything” to my clientspatients.

    Any thoughts on this? THANK YOU.
