“Within an interpersonal neurobiology view, as we “sift” the mind, we attempt to integrate the sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts that comprise the flow of energy and information that defines our mental lives. Sensations include the non-verbal textures created by the body that involve the state of the muscles in our limbs and face, our internal organs, impulses to act, and actual movements. Sifting the mind with curiosity, openness, acceptance, and love—the “coal” that warms the heart of change—enables us to integrate these many elements of our mind in new ways that permit healing to emerge.”
