SORT BY Relevancy
For many of us engaged in conflict or embroiled in a dispute, it can be very difficult to muster up empathy and compassion for the other side. The longer the conflict goes unresolved it seems the less empathy we have for them as a human being. In this first of our four episode series--Conflict and Empathy: Where Has Empathy and Compassion Gone?-- we will introduce the “wheel of empathy” and the “feel of empathy” as defined by Edwin Rutsch, Founder of a global empathy movement called The Center for Building a Culture of Empathy. We will also discuss how compassion intertwines with empathy and set the foundation for how you build empathy.
Edwin Rutsch is the founding director of the Center for Building a Culture of Empathy. The CultureOfEmpathy.com is the largest website on the Internet focused on nurturing and fostering empathy. After spending 10 years as a seeker traveling, working and studying his way around the world, Edwin worked for many years in the computer technology field. After discovering the power of empathy, he has dedicated his life to raising the level of empathy in society and building a global culture of empathy.

em·pa·thy - noun \'em-p?-the\ : the feeling that you understand and share another person's experiences and emotions : the ability to share someone else's feelings.
One of the traits common to healers is some degree of empathy. As everything holds both light and shadow, the ability to feel the emotions of others as if they are your own can be both a gift and a hindrance. While empathy can enhance the connection between a practitioner and a person receiving healing work, it can also leave the healer open to a flood of emotions that can be at best disruptive and at worst disabling.
EMPATHY CAN BE MANAGED!
On today's episode, we'll explore learning how you can transform empathy from a reflex to a choice. will share exercises that will enable you to not only decide if your empathy is needed, but also choose how much empathy you need for each situation!

Most of us do not take these situations as teachings. We automatically hate them. We run like crazy. We use all kinds of ways to escape -- all addictions stem from this moment when we meet our edge and we just can't stand it. We feel we have to soften it, pad it with something, and we become addicted to whatever it is that seems to ease the pain.

Everything You Need to Know about Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Abuse - click on this link: http://www.narcissistic-abuse.com/faq...
Pathological narcissism has been compared to the Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly the Multiple Personality Disorder). By definition, the narcissist has at least two selves. His personality is very primitive and disorganized. Living with a narcissist is a nauseating experience not only because of what he is - but because of what he is NOT. He is not a fully formed human - but a dizzyingly kaleidoscopic gallery of mercurial images, which melt into each other seamlessly. It is incredibly disorienting.

Some great information on today's program -- the last until September -- including information on collaborating with kids on social difficulties. But one parent told us, by email, about something she and her husband do with her son when it doesn't seem like there's a problem to be solved but their son does need to be heard: they call it the Empathy Corner.
Buddha says, Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others; thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed. Sympathy is the heightened awareness of another’s plight such as I’m sorry for your loss. Empathy is the ability to step into the shoes of another person, attempting to understand their feelings and perspectives. Compassion goes a step further, where you first feel empathy and then a desire to help alleviate the suffering of another. Compassion is used to express the same feeling as empathy, but you have a desire to take action. Over the last decade, neuroscientists have identified an empathy circuit in our brains which, if damaged, can curtail our ability to understand what other people are feeling. Evolutionary biologists have shown that humans are social animals who have naturally evolved to care for each other, like our primate cousins. Psychologists feel that we are primed for empathy by strong attachment relationships in the first two years of life. Empathy is a topic for scientists, business leaders, educaters, and political activists. According to research, empathy is a habit we should cultivate to improve the quality of our own lives. The buzz stems from a revolutionary shift in the science of how we understand human nature. The old view that we are essentially self-interested creatures is being nudged firmly to the side by evidence that we are also wired for empathy, social cooperation, and mutual aid. Join me and Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera as we discuss this topic. After the show, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live.
As you hear a lot of talk about armageddon and the end of the world you will also here those who say the earth and heavens will be destroyed literally and then rebuilt. phrases such as "new heaven,new earth", 'the stars shall fall from heaven to the earth" and then this one where Peter in his letter to the church says "the elements shall melt with fervent heat". What do these things actually mean? Let's find out together.
Assisting me is my spirit teacher Mary; we will answer questions and give love based advice on any subject. The primary intent is helping you deal with the fears that keep you from being truly happy. The focus will be on love, relationships, sexuality, money, health and spirituality. Love is: compassion, respect, and kindness, and forgiveness, generosity of spirit, humor, and appreciation. These principals of love can assist in any situation.
We will look at your past lives and what fear based beliefs you brought to this life. I will also present messages from those loved ones who have passed and what they have to say about your situation. The material they present is focused on love based answers and applying the law of attraction. I teach the art and attitude of success, a way of raising your vibration to what you desire.
I will also present material to entertain and hopefully help you laugh.

“Empathy is the ability to understand and connect not just with others but also self-empathy and self-connection, what’s going on inside of ourselves. It’s becoming aware of what’s going on inside our inner world. It’s also going the next step to connect thoughts and feelings to needs.” – Marie Miyashiro
