Emotion: (fr. Latin emovere, from e- (variant of ex-) ‘out’ + movere ’move’; 17th C., mental agitation) a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others; instinctive or intuitive feeling as distinguished from reasoning or knowledge
Feeling: (Latin palpare ”to touch softly, stroke,”, perhaps ultimately imitative; Old English felan “to touch, perceive”) an emotional state or reaction
The drawing board: utilization of feelings and emotions – ones that can be named, others that can be felt. This workshop will dig deep, deeper, deepest. If you were forced to choose, would you rather be “angry” or “sad”?; “frustrated or “confused”?; “ecstatic” or “joyous”. And how would that feel. Or how that would feel. Feel.
