Relationship success is dependent on our capacity for empathy which is not only how we literally learn to feel our loved one’s experience but even more deeply know ourselves. Even though our empathetic response is hardwired into us, and arguably one of our most basic survival mechanisms, for many of us, our empathetic abilities remain undeveloped. Don’t miss Karla McLaren’s life changing insights and easy to learn exercises in how you can become a happier and more feeling person. Her work in the Art of Empathy is not to be missed.
