Embodied Empathy at Changing the Paradigm

Empathy Demo

We led our Embodied Empathy workshop at Echo Parenting & Education‘s Changing the Paradigm Conference┬áin March 2013.

Workshop Description: Join us to witness and practice empathy so that you can return to your daily life confident in using the healing power of unconditional listening. A key element of trauma-informed and nonviolent practices, empathy is sometimes challenging to apply, as it is often approached from an intellectual standpoint. This participatory workshop offers you an embodied experience of connecting with an unguarded heart.

Holding Space Exercise

Participants practice literally holding space for one another.

Certified through Echo Parenting and Education, Andrei Andreev and Julianne Gale have been learning, practicing, and teaching connected communication techniques and embodied emotional processing since 2006.
