Humans experience a broad range of emotions. We often think of things in the simplest terms so we label those emotions as good or bad, positive or negative. We think we should allow ourselves to only feel “good” emotions and work to suppress the “bad” ones. But emotions evolved in humans to confer adaptive advantages... so in a sense, all emotions are useful to our continued survival. Join Lisa Shapiro, Seamus O’Connor, and Eileen Maurer over two Sundays as they take a second look at emotions through a Taoist, evolutionary perspective.
