Empathy Practice Group - Donation Based

  • October 12 · 7:45 PM
  • Integrative Art Therapy

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. -Rumi


When is the last time you felt truly heard and understood? For many of us, it may have been a long time...or never. If you would like to find a safe space where you can support yourself and others through authentic listening and compassion in an advice free zone then try an Empathy Practice Group. We will use a simple card game to playfully practice listening, reflecting, and empathy in the tradition of Nonviolent Communication along with a brief art activity. Absolutely no experience of any kind is necessary. Please call if you have questions. Please reserve your spot by contacting Becka by phone or email. 

Contact: Becka at[masked] 
Time: Thursday, October 12th, 7:45-9pm 
Cost: Recommended donation $15, no one turned away for lack of funds 
Location: Integrative Art Therapy 1825 E Northern Ave #215, Phoenix, AZ 85020

    I feel a lot of peace after the experience of being heard in the empathy space that was created at this meeting because it touched my needs for healing and to be valued.

    I am so sorry and bummed-it doesn't look like I will be able to make this tonight as I am suddenly not feeling well. Thank you for hosting this and if you do another one I hope I can make. I have been looking forward to learning more about NVC. Have fun!

    If anyone has any last minute questions, needs directions, etc. please text/call me on my cell phone [masked]) as this is the last time I'm checking Meetup before the group starts. See you soon! :)

    I can't attend in October. Will the empathy practice group be meeting in November? I'd love to go!

      Hi Shelly. I'm going to see what the attendance and interests of the group is like this Thursday. If the group would like to meet again, I would be happy to host!

    I woke up with Rumi's quote on my mind and heart. I love that we can gather to experience empathy together in a conscious way. I may not be able to make it on Thursday, but will definitely try.
