Empathy is the experience of feeling what others feel. When we empathize with others we are doing two things; we are staying with emotions and we are actively listening. Often we get caught up in our thoughts, judgments, evaluations, or beliefs which create barriers between us. Or we hear what someone says, but we don’t understand what they’re really trying to express. A great way to make sure we are empathetically connecting with others is through mirroring.
KindCommunication.org is a project by a close friend of Wiki World Order, Alex Leach. WWO fully supports the study, practice, and teaching of non-violent communication as one of the core solutions which already exists.
