the Empathy Cafe!
The Global Empathy Cafe's intention is to co-create a safe and warm space where you can log in and join our dedicated team of facilitators and giraffes who are waiting to receive you and listen. Once you enter the cafe you will have the choice of either speaking to one of our volunteer empathic listeners, practicing your empathy skills in a sharing exchange with another participant, or joining the community atmosphere in the lounge room for a chat or a cup of tea. Sometimes we will hold smaller listening circles in the main room or the lounge room depending on the community needs.
What is the Empathy cafe for?
The Empathy Cafe is a space for weaving quality connections through sharing and being received empathically from the heart. The main questions served in the cafe are: How are you?
What is alive in your heart right now? We believe these are key questions that are super worth diving into together. The wellbeing of each of us is necessary for the whole to thrive.
What comes up in the empathic exchange between two people is very much at the heart of NVC. Being present together with whatever comes is the greatest present.
