Have you ever had an argument with a spouse or partner that goes like this:
The argument gets more and more heated until you start talking about feelings, and then it all changes from clenched jaws to peace and tenderness?
It’s pretty amazing that when we talk about our feelings things shift and change. It’s sort of magic!
His Holiness the Dalai Lama wants us all to feel more peace and tenderness.
He wants to help people to communicate with each other, understand their feelings, and talk from a truly heartfelt place.
So, a while back, he asked his friends–the famous emotion researcher, Dr. Paul Ekman, and Paul’s daughter, Dr. Eve Ekman, also an emotion researcher–to help.
Paul and Eve created the Atlas of Emotions–a free online map to help people understand their feelings.
THEN the Dalai Lama wanted Paul and Eve to create a free Atlas of Emotions for KIDS too.
We got a chance to talk with Dr. Eve Ekman about kids’ feelings and the Atlas of Emotions for Children (still in development). Here’s a 4-minute video of our conversation.
