We offered a lot of meaningful listening and made contacts and had interesting dialogues. (anyone else have something to report about the pop-up?

At this event I could really see the need for our empathy training MOOC. The training would be helpful for people going to these rallies. We could be holding and facilitating more circles there with more facilitators.

I imagine a rally like this where the whole group (600 people) sits down in small empathy circles to dialogue about what is important to them, and have deep and meaningful dialog. This is a way to transform fear and aloneness with connection and create the conditions for creative action.

Join us to design and build our free online empathy training.
