Empathy Before Education: Responding to the Past

Empathy Before Education: Responding to the Past | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

When someone comes to us in distress and begins to describe an event that we remember or experienced differently, our first impulse is often to correct the other person. After all, we may reason, if the other person just got the story right, she would no longer feel distress, right? So we set about to educate, to correct the facts or interpretations that we know are different from her version....

 

Putting empathy before education can make a world of difference in our daily interactions. It makes it possible to receive everyone with consideration. The phrase “empathy before education” can serve as a handy reminder to take the time to really hear the other person before we hurry to offer our own interpretations. Then we can shift the focus away from the past—even if it’s the very recent past—in order to make connecting agreements in the present and future.

Reflections: Good communication requires true empathy

Reflections: Good communication requires true empathy | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

In a culture that emphasizes judgment, criticism, punishment and blame, the need to be heard and to matter are two of the greatest unmet needs. Smith teaches that true empathy meets those needs.

 

Smith says, "People want empathy and not sympathy." She teaches that often sympathy, the expression of pity, is confused with empathy, total presence, hearing and acceptance of another's reality. To practice true empathy, we learn to put aside a life time of cultural conditioning. That takes a lot of practice.

 

Smith teaches when we are empathetic, we do not judge or blame, agree or disagree, wonder what he can do to help, or how we might respond. . We sit in quiet, still presence with an open heart. This requires gentle attentiveness to our own state of mind.

Compassionate Shadow-Work | Autumn Estrella Brighid | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

Want to clear your inner path toward your 2013 goals?

Negative self-talk keeps you from experiencing your potential every day–your potential to feel free, blissful, loving, hopeful, and excited about life.

Even a momentary distraction of anger, shame, blame, or fear can derail you from a peaceful and uplifting experience and take you way of course from your personal goals.

Most of us feel embarrassed or frustrated that this negativity comes up and keeps us from getting back into the flow of loving life.

Non-Violent Communication, parts 3 & 4: Empathy and Asking for What We Want

Non-Violent Communication, parts 3 & 4: Empathy and Asking for What We Want | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

Empathy is a fashionable concept at the moment and I celebrate this. Learning to listen with empathy is, I believe, the most important step towards a more peaceful and sustainable world.


Applying the NVC approach to empathy means listening to what someone is expressing beyond the words they use. Most people have been educated to express mainly their judgements and analysis. So being able to hear their unexpressed feelings and needs is a great gift to them – it’s reaching out to what is really alive in them and not only staying in the relatively narrow realm of the mind. If their judgements are directed towards me then empathy is also an essential act of self-protection!

Quote: "Empathy is a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing." Marshall Rosenberg,

Quote:  "Empathy is a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing."  Marshall Rosenberg, | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

Empathy is a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing. Instead of offering empathy, we often have a strong urge to give advice or reassurance and to explain our own position or feeling.

 

Empathy, however, calls upon us to empty our mind and listen to others with our whole being...

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

I want to give you the gift of empathy
And to rid myself of lifeless thought limiting what I see
It’s taken me a while but I’ve come to see at last
How much I miss the present with eyes fogged by the past
So if I take some time before I answer you
I am clearing away my projections
So your divinity can come through
~ Dr Marshall Rosenberg~

I’m excited to share with you this the introductory chapter of my new book. In these introductory pages below, I would like to share the reasons I chose to write the book and develop the Inner Empathy work, explaining how it might assist you in your Nonviolent Communication practice.

Quote: "If you surf, you'd be better at empathy." Marshall Rosenberg

Quote: "If you surf, you'd be better at empathy."  Marshall Rosenberg | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

"Empathy, I would say is presence. Pure presence to what is alive in a person at this moment, bringing nothing in from the past. The more you know a person, the harder empathy is. The more you have studied psychology, the harder empathy really is. Because you can bring no thinking in from the past.

 

If you surf, you'd be better at empathy because you will have built into your body what it is about. Being present and getting in with the energy that is coming through you in the present. It is not a mental understanding."

Marshall Rosenberg

 

"I compared empathy to surfing. I said that empathy is like riding on a wave; it's about getting in touch with a certain energy. But the energy is a divine energy that's alive in every person, at every moment.

 

Unfortunately, many of us are blocked from that divine energy by the way we've been taught to think. But for me, empathy is getting with that energy that's coming through the other person. It's a divine experience. I feel as if I'm really in a flow with divine energy. And when two people connect in that way, any kind of conflict can be resolved so that everybody's needs get met.

When we teach people to empathize with people from other cultures who are behaving in a ways we do not like, we find ways of resolving our differences peacefully. So empathy is a beautiful experience when we have it. And it's powerful to work toward peace in diplomatic relationships based on empathy, not on our usual adversarial tactics.

 

Now when we can empathize with what's alive in another person, it's amazing how much healing can go on. Unfortunately, there's a lot of healing that needs to happen in the world because of the pain people are in, and I'm often called to help individuals who have been victimized by people with different religious beliefs."
