The most common question we get asked is “what is empathy?” Our answer? It’s the consistent decision to understand yourself and others so that we can all have fuller and richer human experiences. It’s a simple statement with a lot of complicated implications. We love complications, to be honest, because the more complicated something is, it’s usually more real. In this light, we’ve designed a 2-day virtual masterclass to dig into some of what it looks like to do the work of empathy. We’ll have discussions about inclusivity, how everyone has trauma and none of it is comparable, how to set boundaries and why the Puritans were and are the worst, and more. It’s us and some special guests for this interactive experience. The next round is February 24 and 25, 2022 and you don’t want to miss it. Head to bit.ly/ARmasterclass to sign up. See you there!
