Andy Whittle

You are warmly welcome to join us at the Imagination Club on Wednesday, 11 January at 18h45 for an interactive, experimental workshop on:

Developing Empathy
Andy Whittle

Many people believe empathy is something we could use more of in society. Indeed, it is likely that our human ability to empathize is one of the main ways our emotions contribute to the survival of the species.

There is a quote attributed to Albert Einstein, that goes: 

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."

In this workshop you will discover and improve upon your own empathic skills and learn how to survive the future.

Workshop to be facilitated by Imagination Club co-founder, Andy Whittle.
