Amy Foster and Kiki Teal Littlestar are the creators of Emotional Geography, the concept of building a map of your inner landscape—the City that is You. Each week, we turn an emotion or way of being into a “neighborhood” in your City, so you can visualize and interact with them as actual places. When you do the work of mapping out your emotions, you'll be able to know exactly where you are and how you feel, so hopefully... you'll never feel lost again.
Your Gratitude Neighborhood
Coming to you live from your internal Public Broadcasting System, it's your gratitude neighborhood!
Your gratitude producers, reporters, and writers work hard to gather information and stories from your other neighborhoods to craft podcasts, radio programs, and television programs to broadcast throughout your Emotional Geography through a lens of gratitude.
It's up to your defenders if these broadcasts are bypassing other emotions and experiences or if they're helping you sink into the present moment with some pleasant perspective to remind you of the good things in life.
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know how your gratitude broadcasts play out.
Your Grief Neighborhood
Today's neighborhood gets a little heavy, but it's one of the most important ones: grief.
Come to the cloister where your cell won't be comfortable, but you will have everything you need and no distractions. Because it is here that we come to process our grief.
Grief can come in many forms—from the loss of a loved one to the loss of a hope or expectation for the future. Here is where you learn that there is no right way to be inside grief. This is a space for you to be quiet and introspective so that you can discover what this loss really means to you.
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know what your grief neighborhood looks like and share your favorite grief rituals.
Your Abandon Neighborhood
Do you hear the beat that beckons you to your abandon neighborhood?
It might feel reckless and terrifying. It might be exciting and enlivening. It might be the place you run away to when you're tempted to burn it all down, move to a remote place, and change your name. Or it might be the place you give yourself when you've responsibly placed your obligations on hold.
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know how the beat calls to you from your abandon neighborhood.
Your History Neighborhood
It's time for a history lesson, but just like everything else here at Emotional Geography, this is a dive into yourself—it's a personal history lesson.
In this neighborhood, we're building out your history library. Are the stories you tell as truth based on the facts found in your map room or are you holding onto an inherited story from someone else? Myrtle the library (and our Defender of the Week) will try to reinforce these stories, but this week we're asking you: what's REALLY true here? What's the story you want to tell yourself?
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know what archetypes you're embodying and what stories you're rewriting.
Your Beauty Neighborhood
Beauty isn't just about appearance, it's a way of being.
This week is all about finding the beauty in your life. It's what gives us the strength to get through the ugly aspects of humanity. Because beauty isn't what the fashion industry sets as "standard."
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know what you've got going on in your Beauty neighborhood
Your Perception Neighborhood
Today you're invited to a party—the most incredible party you can imagine.
But at this party, it seems like the bouncer is letting in a bunch of people who seem a little...fake. How can you tell who is the real gem and who is a hologram?
Don't forget to follow us on Instagram @emotionalgeography and let us know which holograms you're working to dismantle!

Just what you didn't know you needed
I'll admit, it took me a minute to buy into the idea of my inner thoughts and emotions being people, buildings, and neighborhoods but after a single episode of "Emotional Geography," I'm in! The hosts, Kiki and Amy, have a great rapport that is a mix of fun, insightful, and, often, enlightening. I highly recommend this podcast and can't wait to see where we go next!
A wonderful, poignant podcast!
I was so excited for this podcast to begin! Nothing like brilliant women coming together to create work that is founded in designing a more emotionally adept world. I can’t wait for all of the upcoming episodes! It’s going to be a treat, I am sure of it. ❤️
Playful yet profound insight into our inner world
I love how the concept of breaking down your emotions into neighborhoods is so playful and silly while still managing to be serious about how we manage our emotions and carry ourselves in the world. I look forward to listening to how you breakdown every emotion and what each neighborhood looks like!
