Introduction to Empathy Circle Facilitation

What is An Empathy Circle?


An Empathy Circle is a structured dialogue process that effectively supports meaningful and constructive dialogue. The basic process can be fairly easily learned in about 15 minutes and it is a lifelong practice to deepen.

An Empathy Circle increases mutual understanding and connection by ensuring that each person feels fully heard to their satisfaction.  The practice is the most effective gateway practice for learning, practicing and deepening listening and empathy skills, as well as, nurturing an empathic way of being.
