Your emotions – all of them – are the motivation for everything you think and every action you take.

Understanding your emotions and knowing how to work with them will improve every part of your life!

Welcome to EmotionDynamics.org, an educational foundation devoted to bringing powerful emotional awareness and healthy empathy to everyone!

The Emotion Dynamics foundation is based on the work of award-winning author and pioneering researcher Karla McLaren, M.Ed., whose grand unified theory of emotions revalues even the most “negative” emotions and opens startling new pathways to self-awareness, effective communication, and healthy empathy. This work also encompasses McLaren’s groundbreaking Six Essential Aspects of Empathy model, which makes all of the processes in healthy empathy easily understandable, accessible, and attainable.

Your emotions and your empathy are vital to your ability to think, to feel, to learn, to experience the world, to communicate, and to love -- and you can develop and strengthen your emotional awareness and your empathy at any stage of your life.
