I gave a keynote speech about the disease of civilization at the 2nd South American Conference of Mind-Body Psychotherapy, which happened online in November, 2020. Although I had written this article before the pandemics, I had already the feeling that emotion and feeling were going down at the core of biological, social and collective regulation.
