Join your XRLA community for a 10-week Empathy Circle series on tapping into our inner resources so we thrive in a chaotic climate. Empathy Circles are a practice of speaking and listening to each other, with participants rotating through the roles of speaker, active listener, and passive listener. In an empathy circle, we listen not to reply, but to understand. This 10-week series will meet on Fridays from 10am-12pm. RSVP: The ten steps we will work through together: 1.

Empathy involves not only attention to but also connecting with the other person, an active interest in understanding what they are experiencing. Empathy is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message: you're not alone.
