Cohort 7 : Session 1-2 Assignments: 1). Survey  2). Buddy Call 3). Facilitate Circle 4).' How to' 5). Circle Events


Here are some assignments to do before the next Session 2.

(  ) 1. Fill Out Session 1 Feedback Survey   

( ) Session Evaluation & Feedback    https://j.mp/2IPZQeX

Please submit feedback regarding the Empathy Circle Facilitator Training Session that you have just completed, including feedback on Session structure, content, and instructors.

(  ) 2. Empathy Buddy Call.

For more on the importance of support, see,


Assignment: Facilitator Community and Mutual Support

Part of being an Empathy Circle facilitator is to be part of a community and have mutual support with other facilitators. That is so you can support each other when you host Empathy Circles, Cafes, and other projects. As a facilitator, it is important to have as much personal support as possible. Follow the link for more about facilitator support. 

We have paired you up with someone else in the training. Between now and the next Session, connect with that person you have been parted up with. Have a 30 minute mutual support call on Zoom or Skype, etc. 

Person 1 gets 15 minutes to talk about their experience in the training while Person 2 empathically listens. Talk about:

·         What is your experience so far in the training?

·         What are your expectations, etc.?

·         Or just talk about what is alive for you?

Then switch roles and Person 2 talks for 15 minutes and Person 1 empathically listens.

(  ) 3. For Next Session How to Empathy Circle 

In the next Session you will give the How to Empathy Circle instructions and facilitate a Circle on a topic of your choice.

You can check these basic instructions for How to Take Part in an Empathy Circle


(  ) 4. Hold an Empathy Circle with Family or Friends.

Try to facilitate an Empathy Circle with family, friends, etc. before the next Session. You just need to find 3 more participants. Sometimes it is hard to get them to take part. One way is to say you have this assignment for a workshop and it would be a big help to you if they took part.

Report back on how it went in the next Session. Share your approach for getting participants to take part and any challenges.
