Miki Kashtan – Empathy, Expression, and Whose Needs Are on the Table
Have you ever had the experience of someone offering you empathy, and yet you experienced their energy as being elsewhere? Have you ever offered empathy to someone else because you wanted them to feel better? Has anyone ever spoken about themselves and yet you experienced deep support?
All of these are examples of a subtle layer of communication that brings more complexity to the empathy/honesty distinction that we learn in NVC workshops. This deeper layer is about where the emotional energy is flowing and whose needs are being held. Whether we say “I” or “you”, speak statements or ask questions, the power of our speech has a lot to do with what our heartmind is focused on. In this session, Miki plans to guide participants in discovering within themselves how to choose where to focus and how to carry that into words.
