Awe & Wonder
How can we experience more awe & wonder in daily life?
If you've ever felt disconnected from the world around you - or like you're living on 'autopilot' - then you need more awe in your life!
At this special event, social psychologist Professor Dacher Keltner will show how experiencing more awe can help us open our minds to everyday wonder, collaborate better with others and see the deeper patterns of life.
Prof Keltner will share insights from his research into how awe transforms our brains and bodies. He'll also reflect on the role of awe across history, culture and within his own life during a period of immense grief. And he'll explain how cultivating a sense of wonder can lead us to appreciate what is most humane in our human nature.
This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on the 28th April 2023.
