The Limits of Empathy and the Practice of Purpose-Oriented Healing
When we want to liberate ourselves, or accompany others on the path to liberation from what has been done to us to prepare us to function in modern, patriarchal societies, being received with empathy is an indispensable component, and not the only one.
In this session I plan to take a look at liberation as increasing our capacity to mobilize towards our vision. Within this approach, we lean on purpose and on practical and specific agreements to move us where we want to go, going for empathy and healing only when no other pathways exist.
