Imagine a meeting in which you always feel heard and able to listen fully. No need to fight for airtime or defend yourself against attack. Maybe you already know (and like) the others. Maybe you don’t. Maybe the topic is controversial (e.g., family conflict, pro-choice vs pro-life, Democrats vs Republicans, God vs the Devil). Regardless, you share, you learn, and your mind explodes with new ideas. Co-creation happens naturally. That’s what it’s like in an Empathy Circle. It feels great. I loved hanging out with Culture of Empathy founder Edwin Rutsch and fellow empathy authors/activists Minter Dial and Anita Nowak. We took on the question, “How do we build a more empathic culture?” Check out the video and see for yourself how it works. I wonder…what would you like to tackle with an Empathy Circle?
