Join our recurring hosts Dr. Alan Cowen, Dr. Dacher Keltner, and Matt Forte as they welcome special guest, Emmy-nominated storyteller, filmmaker, and futurist Jason Silva, creator of “Shots of Awe” on Youtube.
Being together is, well...complicated. This holiday season, tuck into this very special episode of The Feelings lab where we discuss the warm, minty emotions of the holiday season. The holidays stretch our sense of time, evoke the deep sacred of now, fill us with nostalgia, joy, and wonder, and, if we're lucky, make us cry. Learn how the seasoned rhythm of the holiday season sits upon our seasonal biology like a sack full of Christmas surprises.
In this clip, futurist Jason Silva explains his mixed feelings associated with the holiday season, specifically the celebration of the New Year. It evokes in him a bittersweet nostalgia that amplifies the passage of time.
