The tool is designed to help users understand their emotions and create a map of their mind

The Dalai Lama recently launched the Atlas of Emotions, an interactive website that helps people understand and navigate their feelings to enhance self-understanding.

The website, which was created in partnership with psychologist Paul Ekman, is meant to turn secular audiences into more self-aware, compassionate beings by giving them a tool that helps individuals understand their complex feelings and triggers. The tool outlines five core emotions—anger, disgust, fear, sadness and enjoyment—and explains how thoughts and feelings come about, how they are experienced, how they affect our actions, and how we can overcome our triggers. The resource is available to anyone with internet access.
