Here are assignments to do before the next Session.

1. Fill Out Session Feedback Survey Session Feedback:

http://bit.ly/Feedback-Cohort13C Please submit feedback regarding the Empathy Circle Facilitator Training Session that you have just completed. Post any questions and we will try to address them in the beginning of the next Session.

2. Review and Document Empathy Circle Facilitation Challenges. Challenges Catalog:
Here is a list of facilitation challenges you may encounter
You can review these before the next Session. When you facilitate your Empathy Circle you will be able to dial up the level of challenge you want from

( )None, ( )Low, ( )Medium

Here is a video example of a (x)High Challenge
This was Edwin facilitating an empathy circle at a pollical demonstration between the political left and right at the University of California at Berkeley.

3. 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.

Here Are Some Different Versions of the "How To Empathy Circle" Instructions. http://bit.ly/EC-How

And/Or Hold a One on One Empathic Listening with Family or Friends.
See this assignment instructions: https://j.mp/3dPElI7
This assignment is to empathically listen to someone for an entire hour. If you are not able to find people to hold an Empathy Circle with, this could be an alternative exercise or in addition to that. You empathically listen to someone just like in the Empathy Circle, but for a full hour. So to be clear, you are not taking turns like in an Empathy Circle, but are just listening for the full hour.

> Report back on how it went in the next Session.
