KAMA MUTA

‘moved by love’

Kama Muta has been thought to serve an important evolutionary function. When we share an experience as a whole, there is a heightened sense of compassion towards each other. This motivates devotion to these important relationships, deepening the perception of equivalence, or oneness with each other around a common experience and strengthening the bond within a community.

Through authentic stories of real people that move us to feel what it is like to live in another person’s perspective for a few moments, we give nonprofits and brands the opportunity to help their audience experience their organization from the receiving end.
