What 180 nuns can teach us about hapiness

The video of my talk at Sydney Ignite 4, on Nuns and Happiness. My first time speaking at Ignite, and it was a great experience.

While negative emotions like anger or fear serve an obvious purpose in helping our species survive, why did we evolve positive emotions, like gratitude, compassion and forgiveness? What purpose could such emotions have beyond making us feel good? How could they help us survive, and thrive, as a species?

More importantly, what could 180 nuns teach us about this whole process?
