Designing Emotional Awareness w/ Eve Ekman, Ph.D

How can we bridge Eastern contemplative and Western psychological approaches to cultivating balance in our emotions?

Contemplative psychologist Eve Ekman first heard this question posed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama at a 2000 Mind and Life meeting in Dharamsala among renowned scientists and contemplative scholars and it has guided her teaching, research and personal practice ever since.  

Fifteen years later the Dailai Lama asked Eve and her father, renowned emotion scientist Paul Ekman, to create an Atlas of Emotions that could visually guide people through the inner territory of feelings and develop an emotional fluency of states in order to navigate their way towards a calm mind. In collaboration with design firm Stamen, Eve and Paul created this online tool and it launched in 2016. Now in five languages, the Atlas of Emotions is being adapted as a sonic sound journey for the Google IO conference in May 2019.

In this experiential Consciousness Hacking workshop, Eve will share about the journey of visualizing emotional awareness and lead participants through developing a greater emotion vocabulary, embodied meditation of emotion awards, and a hands on mapping of their own emotional episodes.
