Two leading thinkers engage in a landmark conversation about human emotions and the pursuit of psychological fulfillment At their first meeting, a remarkable bond was sparked between His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one of the world's most revered spiritual leaders, and the psychologist Paul Ekman, whose groundbreaking work helped to define the science of emotions. Now these two luminaries share their thinking about science and spirituality, the bonds between East and West, and the nature and quality of our emotional lives.

Accompanied by commentaries on the findings of emotion research and the teachings of Buddhism, their interplayamusing, challenging, eye-opening, and movingguides us on a transformative journey in the understanding of emotions.
