Pop-up Mini Workshop and Empathy Session for NYCNVC Alumni with Thom and Clara
Wednesday Evening — April 8 — from 7:00 PM‑9:00 PM
Would you like to give and receive some empathy?
The “Empathy Cafe” was started in NYC in 2012. It ran every Friday night for years, thanks to my colleague, David Browning, until life circumstances finally ended the run. I thought bringing it back would be a wonderful way for us to support one another as a community.
So this April 8th, we’re offering up a one-night online revival of our beloved Empathy Cafe. It’s open to any and all of our alumni, as cyberspace allows. You can register above — no fee.
We will start with a game or exercise to get our “empathy skills” warmed up, and then we will break into empathy dyads or triads, with coaching help available. We will practice for about an hour (1/2 hour or 1/3 hour each), do a little harvest session, and head home, probably feeling much more connected to ourselves and to life.
Just one evening of this simple powerful practice can help us get more self-connected, more self-expressed and compassionate — and perhaps a bit less stressed.
Although there is no fee for this event, to the extent possible, donations are encouraged and accepted during the event. This supports our core team and allows us to serve those of us who have less access to money.
