Judith van Praag's curator insight, February 11, 12:49 AM

What if I say that there wasn't a book that saved my life? What if I say I  couldn't read at worth a dime at thirteen, after my father died. What if I tell you I read the same sentence over and over and nothing made sense?

And then the summer after I lost my dad, I discovered Roald Dahl. His short stories were strange, but that's exactly what worked. Dahl's crazy stories made sense when life as I had known it ceased to exist. And so did Jung's book on dreams, and Buddhism.

What does a ferry have to do with submission of your poetry or prose? Well, for one, Whidbey [would be] island is the home of the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts (NILA) and you take a ferry to get across the water of Puget Sound. Not that you need to hand deliver your writing, but still, you may wish to literally touch base some time, to take or present a workshop for instance.

 

You could of course drive all the way up north to Anacortes and cross Deception Bridge to the top of Whidbey, which in itself is a special trip, but crossing the water adds to the adventure, crossing the water may open your mind, crossing the water affects Soundings so to speak.


Look up Hexagram #59 of the I-Ching: Crossing the Great Water.

Give Your Empathy a Boost

Give Your Empathy a Boost | Love | Scoop.it

The brain is naturally empathetic. You have "mirror neurons" which connect your brain like Wi-Fi with people you observe. As a protective mechanism, you automatically tune into their emotions, their movements and intentions.

When you walk down the street and someone comes your way, it's likely you will both move in the same direction even though you are trying to get out of each other's way. This is because your mirror neurons sensed the person's intentions and you "mirrored" their actions until your cognitive brain could engineer an opposing move that cleared the path....


To increase your empathy, you have to both control your wandering mind and strengthen your capacity to empathize through practice.


Here's how:

Be quiet, inside and out. ...Fully watch as well as listen.....Ask yourself what you are feeling....Test your instinct....

Developing Empathy: Raising Children who Care

Developing Empathy: Raising Children who Care | Love | Scoop.it

What is Empathy?
Empathy is the ability to understand the feelings of others, feel what they feel, and respond in helpful, compassionate ways. Children who are able to identify with and comfort others make friends more easily, generally perform better academically, and demonstrate a higher level of moral and emotional development.

 

How do we teach empathy?

Infants: (Birth to 1 yr.) ...Toddlers: (1-2yrs.) ... ( name feelings)Pre-schoolers: (3-5 Yrs....) (share) Ages 5 and up:... (model behaviors).

The article makes good points i.e. how adults interact with children and model empathy is important at all ages.

Sophia Tara's curator insight, April 25, 12:55 PM

Model empathy: Above all, remember that parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.  If we expect our children to grow into caring, empathetic adults we must model these behaviors. Let your children see your kind and thoughtful actions, hear you express your concern for the feelings of others, and demonstrate empathetic parenting. Listen carefully to your children and ask questions that help them clarify their thoughts and feelings.

4 Writing Tips I Learned at Drama School ~ Chuck Sambuchino

4 Writing Tips I Learned at Drama School ~ Chuck Sambuchino | Love | Scoop.it
As an undergrad at NYU, I saw the writing classes I took as “core curriculum,” pure and simple. Sure, they were rigorous and fun, but they distracted from my real focus—the studio where I spent twenty-five hours a week learning how to act. It took several post-grad years for me to come to terms with the fact that I was not a particularly spectacular actress and that my happiest moments were spent typing on my laptop, lost in worlds of my own making. But that drama degree was not in vain. My stud

I Feel Your Pain: The Neuroscience of Empathy

I Feel Your Pain: The Neuroscience of Empathy | Love | Scoop.it
Empathy is rooted in our neurological makeup.


Though not entirely responsible for empathy, mirror neurons do help us detect when another person is angry, sad or happy, and allow us to feel what the person is feeling as if we were in their place.


Ramachandran suspects that mirror neuron research will lead to understanding purportedmind reading abilities, which may in fact have an organic explanation, such as a strong empathic occurrence in which one’s emotional/physical sensations are experienced by the other.


Mirror neurons are important in learning and language acquisition. Through imitation, vicarious learning allows for the construction of culture and tradition.

Practical Empathetic Communication

Making practical use of an otherwise esoteric concept such as empathy requires division of the concept into its simplest elements.


As outlined by Frederic Platt  key steps to effective empathy include:

recognizing presence of strong feeling in the clinical setting (ie, fear, anger, grief, disappointment);pausing to imagine how the patient might be feeling;stating our perception of the patient's feeling (ie, "I can imagine that must be ..." or "It sounds like you're upset about ...");legitimizing that feeling;respecting the patient's effort to cope with the predicament; andoffering support and partnership (ie, "I'm committed to work with you
