EMPATHY SKILLS TRAINING ~ 2 Sessions ~ 3 Hrs Total

  • Learn the art of Empathic Listening, and watch your personal and work relationships transform!
  • You will receive instruction in the art of deep listening, clarifying what empathy is and what it isn't.
  • Learn the distinctions between empathy and advice, consolation, interrogation, one-upmanship, and more.
  • You will have the opportunity to practice and ask questions, as you receive practical tools and coaching in how to offer empathy, both to others and to yourself.
  • By having a deep capacity for self-empathy, you gain the ability to 'heal' as life happens, rather than storing unresolved pain that festers and often spills over later.
  • In addition, when one is able to have empathy and compassion for oneself, it becomes far easier to access these for others, even under trying situations.
  • It has been shown that when a child receives empathy, they are far more likely to have compassion for themselves and for others, and this quality stays with them throughout their life.
  • The more one practices, the more this essence of presence becomes the default, replacing blame and judgement, and leading to increasing connection with self and others.
  • Learn to share with your family and friends how you would like to be heard when sharing your heart.

EMPATHY SESSION ~ 60 or 90 minutes

  • Experience the amazing, liberating feeling of being deeply heard with compassion, full presence and no judgement, while speaking whatever is on your mind and in your heart in a completely confidential space.
  • From this place of free and open expression, you may find great relief, deeper self-connection and clarity, as well as your own wisdom flowing more freely.
  • You will be heard with an open heart, and full awareness of the tenderness of being human, most especially during these times of so much transition all around us.
  • You are welcome to request advice at the end, yet frequently the experience of just being able to 'get it all off your chest' without interruption is all the medicine one needs.
  • Ultimately, we recommend taking our Empathy  Skills Training, described above, where you will learn to give both yourself and others empathy as needed. You can then find an empathy partner to trade sessions with.

COUPLES MEDIATION with Jivan ~ 2 Hours

  • Couples mediation using compassionate communication skills focuses on creating a human connection, based on mutual respect and understanding of each ones' needs and concerns, and their interdependence.
  • Note: This differs from typical conflict mediation, which rather focuses on the issues of the conflict and trying to find a compromise, which often ends up being less than satisfying for either party.
  • We will be utilizing empathy skills to create a caring and respectful connection, which is far more likely to result in finding strategies that resolve the conflict to both parties' satisfaction.
what can you expect:
  • We start by setting an intention for compassionate listening and reflecting.  
  • Both parties agree to refrain from blaming, shaming, guilt-tripping, and instead agree to stay focused on listening for underlying needs.
  • Each party takes a turn expressing what is alive for them, while the listener reflects back the feelings and needs they hear, with my support if needed.
  • I will guide you both in making clear requests (rather than demands), and exploring life-enriching strategies for a resolution.
  • There may be times when mourning is needed, if no strategies can be found to meet some of the needs identified.
Sliding Scale Contribution:
Note:
  • By contributing at the higher Support levels, you make it possible for me to offer sessions to those able to contribute less. Thank you for paying it forward!
  • Please note, more than one session may be necessary to come to a mutually satisfying resolution. This largely depends on the depth of the issue, and also on the willingness of both parties to be open to truly hearing the other, and working together to find ways to meet all the needs on the table.
