The Power of Empathy: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Bonus Round!
June 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
June 13, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (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. 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. Some of the questions explored include:
What is it like when someone else truly understands what you are going through?
How have you been able to tell that someone understands what you have experienced or felt?
In general, what motivates you to make the effort to listen with empathy?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
