Trainers Experiential Presentations Salon (pending)
Experiential meeting series where each trainer creates an online empathy lesson which they facilitate, for let's say an hour, with a group of trainers. Then there is an hour or two of feedback and assistance in redesigning the lesson to be more effective.  We are working to set this meeting series up now.


Empathy Trainers Association 
Discussion about creating an association for mutual support and advocacy for empathy trainers, facilitators, teachers and researchers.


Empathic Inquiry Discussion on,
"
What is an Empathic Way of Being?" 
 (pending)
 Just had the idea of doing an empathy circle around the question of “what is an empathic way of being”. Would you like to take part?

We could discuss the question on a record google hangouts and write up a article from the discussion. Maybe we could use Rosa’s empathic inquiry process as well?
