Empathy across Power Differences
For many of us it feels vulnerable to step into imagining, guessing, and then checking with another person what may be going for them: what if our attempt is not received? For many of us, especially those who are not part of NVC communities, receiving empathy can also feel vulnerable, because the practice of empathy asks of us to connect at a different level, to reveal what is truly going on for us.
When there are power differences, these challenges increase. The stakes are higher while the trust is often lower. It’s also often harder to imagine across such differences, sometimes even to see the humanity of others.
All this, and more, is likely to be addressed in this interactive session, building on your experiences and questions.
