Empathy, Compassion and Nonviolent Intervention – Metta Center

Empathy and compassion are essential to personal well-being. They are also skills we can develop that help us to resolve conflict nonviolently.

On today’s show we talk with Mica Stumpf and Peijman Kouretchian of Emergency Peace Teams about their research on Empathy—what it is and what it is not. Learn about their work on an “empathy app” for smart-phones, and get some good ideas for nonviolence workshops by listening to them model the practice of empathy.
