The Empathy Revolution Began Quietly
When a university student turned in a research paper about empathy, and the professor liked it.
How do you think society might be affected if empathy was taught in the home, the workplace, and in schools? Imagine a world in which everyone, children and adults, knew how to care about how others feel and what they need, want, and think.
While each individual has a unique capacity for empathy, some more than others, perhaps empathy may be assisted and encouraged for those who possess some aptitude. Empathic development may require an awareness of one's own emotions, assisted in the first exercise, in order to begin to recognize and feel connected with the emotions of others.
Now for the first time, we have a set of tools to actually learn empathy so that it becomes part of one's way of relating to others.
