Listen now | S1 Finale: Don't be a victim.

Are emotions a distraction from the rational? Or is it really our superpower as humans?

On our season finale, we are joined by our friend and honorary grandfather (and Omar’s honorary grandson), Atta Pilram. Atta shares with us his own journey on learning about his emotions, through family, business, and especially in his art. Omar and Pilram take a deep dive into creativity and the importance of emotional intelligence in our ever-transforming world.

This episode covers:

  • How it felt growing up in Iran, and the many ups and downs of Atta’s life.

  • How feeling into your emotions can be a healing experience.

  • Creativity and its pursuit.

  • The limiting nature of making yourself a victim.

These are all covered through Atta's plethora of stories and imagery, as he reflects on his whole life from a 5 year old kid to a 68 year old grandpa.

Sit back, relax, and reflect. What is your relationship to this world of emotions?
