Empathy Island

The Empathy Island Experience

Drop in every morning

This is an opportunity to learn about ourselves by asking simple questions about artwork, speeches, quotes and texts: how do they make us feel? How do we think the person who created them felt? This practice can have surprising and profound impacts on how we understand ourselves us and respond to others. We do hope you'll join us.
