Episode 127 – Awe

Have you experienced a moment of awe recently?

Did you make a “vocal burst” when you did?

Did you get teary or goosebumps?

How did you feel right after experiencing awe? 

Dacher Keltner shares what he has learned about the experience of “awe,” an emotional state that deserves attention. He examines it through the lenses of science, culture, and personal stories.

He speculates on the evolutionary influence of awe and the importance of awe to our good health.

His 2023 book, Awe: The New Science of Everyday Wonder and How It Can Transform Your Life, sparks an interesting conversation and makes us ponder.

Maybe it will bring you some awe too!

  1. Caught this podcast and really enjoyed the analysis and discussion surrounding the book; however, I don’t think I will read the book. I did read the sample on Amazon. I think all people have experienced awe many times but don’t really think about it, It’s intriguing that an entire book can be devoted to the topic and related to so many interwoven ideas.

    I’m currently reading Happiness by Oshu, but am finding the ideas presented are noteworthy and seem to be heartfelt, but if we did what is recommended here society would self-destruct and the world would be total chaos.

    I enjoy the exposure these types of books provide to various ideas presented and how they are interpreted.

    Your podcasts are fun, upbeat and informative. Keep up the great work!

  2. Thank you for the interesting comments. You know that I will be looking forward to more discussion on your remarks– particularly about how society would self destruct and end in chaos. Maybe you picture lots of people staring up in the sky smiling and not going to work ever again? I hope to check out your book suggestion- Happiness by Oshu. I read the Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor several years ago and just heard another Harvard professor posit his ideas about the state of happiness in America. Keep listening and commenting– we love the engagement.
