Atlas of the emotions …

Daniel Goleman in his book “A Force for Good” describes a project the Dalai Lama has encourage researchers Paul and Eva Ekman to produce An Atlas of Emotions The “map is not the territory” but this tool can help us explore and think more deeply about  and better understand our own emotions. The different frames of states, actions, triggers, moods for the emotions and the idea of a baseline of calm are really helpful signposts for navigating the seas of one’s emotions. Only just seen this tool but it feels important to share it.
Paul Ekman had also written “A Parents Guide to Inside Out”
