WHEN WE OPEN the doors within us to our emotional weather system, we can decipher our reactions to the world around us at a primal level, in our brains and bones and blood. We can understand how our whole being is reacting to our circumstances.


The more precise our recognition of each emotion within us, the better our understanding of the nature of our experience in the world, the more aware we are of what nourishes us, what harms us.


When we are able to feel the shape of these creaturely communications accurately, then we can make informed choices about our behavior.
