Some Next Steps

1. Donations to Support the Trainings

The trainers are donating their time because they want to contribute to building a culture of empathy and spread the Empathy Circle practice as widely as possible. We know that if this vision and practice is widely spread, it will nurture greater well-being in the world. If you would like to contribute to supporting this work, you can make a donation by going to this new Facebook fundraiser, "Help Design and Host a Free Empathy Circle Facilitator Training" or here on PayPal.

Hope to see you at some of these.


5. Join the Empathy Circle Training Course (MOOC) Design Team 

A MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. We are working on building an open-source empathy training course and you can help. The goal is to build a more global empathic society and culture for the wellbeing of all.


6. Train the Trainers 

Take the training a few times so that you can then join a team and host the facilitation training.

I look forward to seeing you again soon.
