Jesse Wiens & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Zen NVC

Jesse Wiens is a multi-media performance artist, passionate gourmet chef, and Center for Nonviolent Communication Certified Trainer. His work is a celebration of life, drawing from his travels and experiences in countries as far off as Afghanistan and Tibet, to living as a Zen monk in the U.S., dancing at punk rock shows, orchestrating meals for hundreds of guests at an exclusive retreat center, and teaching in California San Quentin State Prison.

Jesse says empathy is like a rubber band. It gets stretched out and that’s fear, anxiety, disconnection, etc. It automatically comes back into to the natural shape.
