( ) 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.

6. ( ) Building a Culture of Empathy

In our first Session, we spoke of creating a Culture of Empathy and placing Empathy at the center of such a culture. Important core values would be Empathy, Mutuality, Openness and Care. See more at: http://j.mp/CoEValuesThis is not meant as an exhaustive listing of all the values of a Culture of Empathy, but are a few core values that we see as promoting this culture. You might have other words or understandings of these values, and that’s fine.

Consider the Question:  How do you see the Empathy Circle practice beginning to build a culture of empathy in your world and in the world at large? 

7. ( ) Donation Reminder

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.
