Arianna Huffington Promotes the Importance of Empathy

The final thing I want to end on is, we need a dramatic increase in empathy. There is a race against time at the moment, between the forces and voices of fear mongering that are appealing to our worst parts, to our lizard brains, and the forces of empathy. And we’ve seen here so many people here who are all about empathy.

 

People like cow girl, that is introducing story telling as a way to connect with each other. People who are bringing others together,…… we need to accelerate that instinct for empathy, for connectivity with each other and with ourselves…..
