The Flowering of Collective Empathy

Collective empathy requires an active presence in and to the world around us.  We’re drawing on a very deep reservoir of internal well-being when we engage in collective empathy. We’re transcending the places inside that scare us and keep us small and close to “home.”  The more we move from me to we thinking – the more we access the strengths of our evolutionary interconnections.

The seeds are planted; the needs are great; it’s up to us to choose that the next  human evolution is how we relate to the neighbors next door, on the other side of the world – and to the earth itself.
