Empathy Circle Training: Final Session 5

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/CoEValues This 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?
