Recipe for awe: two-parts curiosity and one-part epic. Shake well and serve in a tall glass of childlike wonder.
As we count down to the main event, the team gets steadily busier and busier to bring you the most awe-inspiring experience possible.
‘Awe-inspiring’, we use that word a lot but what exactly is awe and why is it so flipping important?
Renowned neuropsychologist Paul Pearsall defines awe as ‘an orgasm of positive emotions’. Echoing that sentiment, many positive psychologists agree that ‘awe is the single most overwhelming and gratifying emotion we can feel’.
Which seems like a pretty important ingredient for thriving as an individual, don’t you think?
But the power of awe goes beyond the individual.
According to TED speaker Jane McGonigal (not to be confused with Professor McGonagall), awe doesn’t just feel good, it inspires us to do good. And the reason for that is because we usually feel a sense of awe when we are in the presence of things that are bigger than ourselves (aka that larger-than-life feeling).
You bring the curiosity and childlike wonder, we’ll handle the epic. Together, lets make some awe!
