a weekly discussion series conceived and moderated by Diana Barrett, Ph.D., and Jake H. Davis, Ph.D.

Join us as we take the conversation in a new direction. We will start with a meaningful topic and then turn inwards to explore the emotions that motivate speech and action. Sometimes we will take a break from talking altogether and really be quiet for a moment.

This week’s topic is JOY, exploring its role in facing the problems of the world, and how to cultivate this quality internally.
