Engaging Empathy is about doing the work that brings us back to our deeper nature. Its about doing the work that reconnects us to our emotions and our authenticity. Its about learning to live from the heart.

If you would like,

more connection and joy both within yourself and with others,

tools and practices that nurture your well being and virtuous nature, 

greater emotional skills that will enrich your life, whether during conversations with people, caring for yourselves or taking action in the world,

the workshops and trainings being offered here are about doing just that. 

The trainings themselves draw upon many established traditions such as Buddhism, modern psychology, Nonviolent Communication, Self Compassion and more.

About me...

My name is Mark. I have spent the last ten years or so learning how to bring more and more happiness into my life. I have studied countless physical and mental techniques, I have studied many psychological traditions both ancient and modern, I have spent hundreds of days in silent meditation retreat.

What I share here represents the most profound and the most practical tools I have discovered in that time. I also only share what I practice myself.
