5.0 out of 5 stars A Fuller Understanding of the Emotions 3 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is a mind opening book from two masters of different traditions. Paul Ekman has explored the expression of emotion through studying body and facial expression. As a scientist he discovered many aspects of emotion but from the outside in. In his contact with the Dalai Lama he found a profound change in himself that he couldn't understand clearly from his scientific knowledge. He sought out the Dalai Lama for these discussions to open himself to a different way of understanding. The Dalai Lama has spent his life in the practice of meditation thus opening himself through experience to a way of understanding emotion that leads to moving from the inside out. But more than that he has explored how through insight and awareness human beings can begin to bring the many destructive emotions into a balance in life. This is an unusual and fantastic book that can reveal new possibilities for the reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chatting about emotional evolution 3 May 2009
Format:Hardcover
Ekman gets a whole 39 hours with the Dalai Lama, discussing the world of emotion. The two trade personal stories and research findings, basically talking like friends at the coffee shop. How are emotions triggered? What causes the big differences in intensity, duration, and quality of emotion between people? What aspects of emotional life are shared with animals? (This comes up a lot, and it's fascinating.) What aspects of emotion have survival value? How do moods shape and limit our fields of awareness? What works in overcoming our emotional blinders towards life?

Throughout the discussion these elder gents pull in brief testimonies from social scientists or Buddhist teachers. They think up whole new directions for psychological research. It's fruitful.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO HEAR THE WORDS OF DALAI LAMA 18 July 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is not the first book I read about conversations with Dalai Lama, I have always enjoyed his broad points of view and joyful and at the same time deep sense of life. In this book again we can see how he fits easily on the framework of modern psychology, guided, or better, inspired, by Paul Ekman. The book is a series of conversations, recorded as they were in situ, spontaneous and fresh, dinamic, live, about how to deal with our emotions and mood. It is particularly interesting the first pages when they try to distinguish between mood and emotions and their relation, very ilustrative.
I am a doctor in Social Psychology myself and I would recommend this book to anyone, both professionals and lay people, to clarify how to recognize and control, if possible, our emotions.
