The Feelings Lab Episode 1: Awe

In Episode 1, we explore the emotion that challenges us to confront vastness and mystery. Special guest Tami Simon, founder of Sounds True, weighs in.

In our first week’s episode of The Feelings Lab, we discuss the emotion of awe. Join our hosts Dr. Alan Cowen, Dr. Dacher Keltner, Danielle Krettek-Cobb, and Matt Forte with guest Tami Simon, founder and publisher of Sounds True, the world’s largest living library of transformational teachings that support and accelerate spiritual awakening and personal transformation.

Begin by hearing Dr. Dacher Keltner define the emotion of awe: how it is evoked, its effects on our way of thinking, its impact on our behaviors, and how it helps us tackle the mysteries of life.

Then hear guest Tami Simon, founder of the publishing company Sounds True, describe how we can harness the power of awe to motivate us to revere and care for the world we live in.

Listen to Dr. Alan Cowen, Hume’s Chief Scientist, and Danielle Krettek, the director of Google’s Empathy Lab, discuss whether non-human animals feel awe.

And later in the episode, hear Dr. Alan Cowen discuss why the return of normal life after prolonged social distancing has been awe-inspiring to so many people.

All this and more can be found in our full episode, available on Apple and Spotify
