Empathy Circle – Bren Hardt, CNVC Certified Trainer
Empathy, also called “Attuned Listening”, is both a gift to you and a gift to others. Empathy enlarges our understanding of ourselves and others and awakens compassion where there was once judgment and separation. I cannot imagine the needed world transformation happening without more of us developing our capacity for giving and receiving empathy.
So please join me, Bren Hardt, CNVC Certified Trainer, and others in a community of practice. Saturdays 9 am to 10:30 am Central Time (Texas, USA) on Zoom. Invite your friends to join you. Periodic donations are appreciated on a gift economy basis.
