“What we’re finding is that brief doses of awe move us from a model of self-interest to really being engaged in the interests of others,” Keltner told a Bay Area audience in June. “The preliminary data are showing that it starts to break down this us-versus-them thinking.”

Yes.  I like that the researchers describe awe as a "mighty emotional tonic."

Where's the gin for that emotional tonic?
