The Fiction of the Self

The Paradox of Mindfulness in Clinical Practice

Ronald Siegel • 2/13/2015

What if our therapeutic goals of improving self-esteem, developing a stable and coherent sense of self, and identifying and expressing genuine, authentic feelings all turn out to be symptoms of delusion?

Seeing ourselves in this light can pull the rug out from under us in alarming—though potentially liberating—ways.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: The Precursor to Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Brings Eastern Mindfulness Techniques to Western Medicine

Ronald Siegel • 3/31/2014

In the late 1970s, before mindfulness exercises caught on in psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation was making inroads into the medical community.

Mindfulness Therapy: Three Reasons it’s Revolutionizing the Psychotherapy Field

Why Meditation in the West Went from Being Relegated to Counterculture, to Becoming the Hallmark of Mindfulness Therapy

Ronald Siegel • 11/7/2013
