We have almost unlimited reserves of emotional energy, manifesting in all sorts of ways as we interact with the world and experience emotional episodes that can be exhilarating or miserable, deeply pleasant or profoundly unpleasant. While many of these emotional systems serve an evolutionary purpose and have helped us survive, they can also limit our ability to adopt a more global perspective and see the things we need to support our communities and the planet at large.

In this 2-hour online workshop, emotions researcher Dr. Eve Ekman will explore the topic of concentric circles of compassion that we can gently attend to in order to balance our emotions and channel their energy into constructive transformative action.
