How consistently can we use the communication tools, meditation techniques, or other frameworks we know for well-being, balance, and connection in our daily lives? Often, such tools are taught or practiced without adequate cultivation of the intention, the heart-quality, that must guide them in order to successfully accomplish their aims.

A fully embodied and integrated experience of empathy – the felt, emotional resonance with experience – is a key that can transform our use of these many tools, enhance our ability to employ them skillfully, and enrich the quality of our lives.

In this workshop we will learn practices to develop the empathic basis for skillful communication, inner resilience, and fulfilling relationships. Through a combination of imagery, movement, guided reflection, and interactive exercises, participants will deepen an innate sense of empathy, learn ways to develop this in daily life, and strengthen the ability to stay present in all circumstances.  Appropriate for both experienced and newer students of NVC and meditation, as well as helping professionals.

This workshop will be co-led by Oren Sofer.
