Julia Shen – The Art of Empathy & How it Can Transform Your Life and the Lives of Others
Have you ever wondered how to truly support someone you care about when they are in pain? Is there a better way to express our care beyond offering advice, comfort, distraction, or saying “Sorry to hear that”?
And what about when you are the one in pain? Imagine having someone who can listen to you wholeheartedly, hold a safe space for your feelings without judgment, and truly understand you instead of trying to cheer you up or fix your problems. How would that feel? And what if we could train ourselves to be our own empathy buddy, available 24/7?
Empathy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to others and ourselves. It strengthens relationships and is a key component of conflict resolution.
This interactive workshop is based on the principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). We will introduce the Art of Empathy and provide an overview of its key principles, including what empathy is and what it isn’t. You will have the chance to practice using real-life scenarios.
This workshop is open to all, regardless of your previous knowledge of NVC (whether you know nothing or are an advanced practitioner).
