Empathy is the ability to read and understand others’ emotions, needs, and thoughts. Requires active and careful listening seeking to understand.
Empathy is what allows us to influence, inspire, and help people achieve their dreams and goals. Empathy enables us to connect with others in a real and meaningful way.
In the present circumstances where the debate and discussion around every single subject are held by intolerance and radicalism, we need more than ever empathy.
Empathy leads us to compassion, kindness and fraternity.
Mindfulness meditation helps us to strengthen all of these skills. Only is necessary to take a breath.
