Journey to Empathy



Empathy in Mediation with Martin Golder interview by Mary Damianakis

Empathy is a way of relating to others around you that recognizes the oneness of a common humanity. Sympathy is felt for the 'other'.

The journey that I have been on is from a somewhat sociopathic approach to my fellow beings in which I came to recognize that empathy was about the most powerful tool in the human spectrum.  Mechanical empathy is a way to apply empathy in a situation in which you may not feel it. Gradually the practice of mechanical empathy shifts the practitioner into a truly empathic person. The brain plasticity responds to practice, practice, practice by shifting the 'going through the motions' into a true and easy feeling of genuine oneness with all life forms.
