In The Mindful Therapist, Daniel Siegel writes: Interoception



“Interoception is the skill of perceiving the interior of our body.

As we… focus a spotlight of attention on this internal world of our bodily states,

we draw upon the sensations of our muscles,

the signals from our heart and intestines,

the overall feeling inside of ourselves.

Interoception is a crucial aspect of the monitoring function of the mind

that opens the gateway to attunement with others.”
