Emotions are the essence of life. Since we are born we are pure emotion and intuition. If there is something common to all cultures and that distinguishes us as humans is this "repertoire" of unconscious answers of passions, affections and feelings toward the people and things that surround us. Therefore, science is putting the focus on the study of these aspects: emotion, intuition and being in touch with the essence through meditation. These themes begin to be increasingly present in the classrooms too as well as in school curriculums.

This resource focusses on increasing personal and social well-being, as a necessary for quality education. Within the framework of  Global Citizenship Education it develops in the students abilities as to discern the emotions of the other, to use an emotional vocabulary, to empathically engage in the experiences of other people and/or dealing with negative emotions and circumstances; it will help equip them with tools that allow them to be aware of inequalities, build a culture of peace and nonviolence, an assessment of the more positive diversity and contribute to a more sustainable global development.
