Question Your Feelings, But Don’t Dismiss Them

Question Your Feelings, But Don’t Dismiss Them

Question your feelings. This is how we start the exploration of the 2nd Untruth, "always trust your feelings." We will define affect, the wholeness of our emotional experience, labels as a short-hand for communicating a physiological experience to others, and the...

We will instead embrace a deeper appreciation for how our brain/body system works within experience to prepare us for an uncertain future. Ultimately we can learn to accept and even desire to build a capacity for seeing errors and mistakes and consequences as spaces for growth.

Democracy is a community project and as such, it is only as strong as the virtues of the people who are participating in it. It is only as strong as the social habits we encourage in ourselves and one another. Here we explore the emotion of hate within an understanding of our very human need to shape reality to suit our vision of what we believe it to be or should be, and seeing then how anything that gets in the way of that vision invokes our passions.

Democracy is a Value-based interpersonal construct for guiding human behavior. As such, democracy exists at the intersection of humanity’s greatest potential and all our foibles. We can aspire to be the best versions of ourselves that we know to be, but it requires an active engagement, both on the ground through action and also through mindful reflection.

Pathologizing Human Behavior

Pathologizing Human Behavior

Research on human behavior notes that we often excuse personal bad behavior using external variables, yet blame internal unchangeable qualities for the same actions in others. Further, we rationalize behavior, by placing it into a personally coherent narrative or...

The Story of Your Anger

The Story of Your Anger

We like to think of our emotions, joy, anger, love, as neat and tidy labels, for the sensations we are feeling. Adding to this narrow vision of our lives, we then place judgments on our feelings, claiming some are "good" or "bad," putting us in the unenviable position...

Exploring the nature of 'anecdotal evidence,' why it's so enticing and why we all engage in it. The power of the anecdote or story resides in what stories are: the creation of causal connections within our perception. We are declaring what we believe the world to be....

Setting goals and not achieving them too often leads us to shame and self-doubt. I want to encourage you to possibly stop goal-setting for a moment and focus on what you care about. Start with livable goals that begin with what you're already doing, succeed from a...
