Steps towards building empathy. By Pianpian Xu Guthrie, founder and CEO of Amotions, Inc.
We often start Amotions events with the loving-kindness meditation to cultivate a compassionate and safe space for everyone to share and practice techniques to develop various skills. You can do this meditation with peers at Amotions events (https://amotionsinc.com/), and practice this in your daily life to help you keep calm and compassionate.
We often encounter situations in our professional or personal lives that we need to have a difficult conversation with someone. We can apply emotional intelligence techniques in these cases.
A lot of people who came to the virtual sessions hosted through Amotions want to know how to give feedback. Giving feedback is a skill we can learn. We can keep in mind that giving feedback is a way for us to help people. We can give feedback in a caring way. Join Amotions to learn different techniques and practice with a supportive community.
"I have been really challenged to live in the present these two weeks. What I found through the session today is my body is more relaxed through our session, and I feel more present to my physical body, and this is very helpful for me, because I feel more balanced, and I probably make better decisions when I feel more balanced.”
"Through this event, it allows me to understand myself better. Every person has different perspectives and different emotions, happy or not happy, or anger, hear different perspectives will help us to learn and see a bigger picture. I would like to get myself better at listening because I believe listening is an important skill for me to connect with myself and others. Everyone is very kind and open up to share their emotions, and allows me to understand all the people better.”
“There are a lot of things I have gotten out of this and that was unexpected. I really like how everyone in this group is different. What I think that brings us all together, despite of everyone is different, there’s a trust layer. So I can be honest, and I don’t need to say everything is great. I felt really good, I felt heard, everyone was actually listening. Also the benefit of listening to other people, heard similar experiences from other people.“
