[Workshop] Humans and Emotions

Humans are emotional beings. However, emotions have been hijacked by everything around us (i.e. religion, politics, etc.) Some very primary human emotions necessary to feel human will be discussed in depth. In his book, "Sapiens", author Yuval Harari talks about the need to teach emotional intelligence to future generations. Participants will learn active power listening tools they can take with them to practice on self and others.
