About Curtis Watkins and Dan Newby

How often do you feel something but can’t find just the right word to describe it?

There is a solution. It is called “The Field Guide to Emotions: A Practical Orientation to 150 Essential Emotions”, and just like any field guide it helps you identify what you are experiencing by describing it from different perspectives. This handy reference was developed by two highly experienced coaches and teachers.

Curtis Watkins is a masterful ontological coach and trainer with a lifetime of study in somatics and drama. As an actor himself, he understands the value of noticing, naming, and being able to generate emotions to serve the moment. He has trained hundreds of leaders in the area of somatic integration of emotions and now offers his expertise to you through his writing.

Dan Newby is a trainer, coach, and author who is committed to making emotional literacy common sense in the world. He is the author of "The Unopened Gift: A Primer in Emotional Literacy" and founder of the School of Emotions.World which offers online training and mentoring conversations for coaches, leaders, and educators.
