EMPATHY:

Compassion, Love, and Our Lives!

Date: February 27, 2:00-4:00 PM EST

Join me for a hands-on, interactive art “workout,” designed to strengthen your empathy and compassion as we also examine the virtue of love.   We will use my Balanced Way of Seeing® method to explore multiple layers of meaning in Ben Shahn’s painting Spring 1947. We will consider this work and its timely relevance to life and love during the Pandemic. Reflecting on past and present moments in our lives, we can rediscover sources of our own empathy needed to confront challenging relationships and issues in times ahead.

“Empathy is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of you’re not alone.
