The Embodied Foundations of the Socio-Moral Emotions vs the Primary Emotions

I'm excited to share this video about an aspect of emotions that I feel deserves a lot more attention and understanding:

The Embodied Foundations of the Socio-Moral Emotions vs the Primary Emotions

I invite you to watch this 29-minute exploration of these two main types of emotions and find answers to these questions:

➟ What are primary versus socio-moral emotions, and importantly, from an embodiment perspective, how does that play out in terms of our core affect states?

➟ What are the core drivers of our emotional energy and impulses when they come from a directly personal (primary) source versus from a more socio-moral place? 

➟ Why does the ecology or interplay between these ‘two types’ of Emotions, play such a HUGE role in our lives, and especially in our cultural dynamics on the whole? 

➟ How do our own patterns and conditioning develop with each of them? And how do different people, cultures, and often genders relate to and embody each set?

This video gives you a relatively faced-paced tour through the affective foundations of both the Primary emotions and the Socio Moral emotions, and then explains a bit about how they relate and interact, in & through our body-mind.

If you find this framework insightful, and would like to learn a set of simple, emotionally empowering practices you can use to to safely experience the full spectrum of your emotions as sources of valuable energy and information that bring embodied wisdom & power into your daily life...
