Empathy Practice Space

  • Erin Merrihew Consulting 6019 Roosevelt Way NE Seattle WA 98115 (map)

Empathy is an innate human quality—one we all possess. But skillful empathic listening is an art, and it requires practice!

Join me for a facilitated Empathy Practice Space where you’ll reconnect with the art of deep active listening, and get some hands-on practice in a nonjudgmental environment. We’ll begin with a few minutes of mindfulness to cultivate presence and focus together. I’ll walk one volunteer through a live empathic listening demo, highlighting some key principles and tools to be aware of, and then you’ll have the opportunity to practice with a partner—both to hear, and to be heard. I’ll offer the option of informal coaching and feedback as I move around the room observing.

This practice space is designed for graduates of Erin’s 8-Week Essentials of Compassionate Communication Series, and folks with significant familiarity and experience with NVC. If you are not a graduate of Erin’s series, please inquire before registering.

Spots are limited to 8.

$35 per person
