The Power of Empathy: 90 Min. Conversation w/ Optional 30 Min. Q&A with Hosts!

March 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT

7:00 PM EASTERN / 4:00 PM PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)

Empathy goes beyond concern or sympathy. Empathy is stepping into the shoes of another with the intention to better understand and feel what they are experiencing.  It is expressed in our choice to be fully present with someone and listen beyond their words for their feelings and unmet needs. Knowing that at least one other person “gets what I’m going through” is the gift of empathy. The power of empathy can bridge our “us vs. them” perceptions and lead to new solutions, improved relationships, better strategies for social change, reduction in loneliness, and realization of our shared human needs and oneness. This conversation is about sharing experiences giving, receiving, and observing empathy.

HERE is the conversation guide.  Please pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.
