The present invention relates to an emotion guidance device (10) for guiding emotions of at least a first user (1) and a second user (2) towards synchronization or de- synchronization. The device comprises an input interface (11) for receiving a first physiological signal (16) of the first user (1) from a first physiological sensor (22) and a second physiological signal (18) of the second user (2) from a second physiological sensor (24). The device further comprises a calculating unit (13) for calculating a synchronization index (I) based on the first physiological signal (16) and the second physiological signal (18), the synchronization index (I) representing the level of synchronization of emotions of the users (1, 2). Further, the device comprises a control unit (14) for controlling at least one biofeedback signal (19) depending on the calculated synchronization index (I), and an output interface (15) for repeatedly or continuously outputting the at least one biofeedback signal (19) to at least one biofeedback device (26, 28).
