“Empathy is Needed When Things Get Heated”, Episode #131

I have a great story to share with you, told by the three men who lived it, about how an unattended fire that could have been a catastrophe at multiple levels, instead became a powerful wisdom opportunity and a relationship-strengthening experience.

Welcome to “Empathy is Needed When Things Get Heated”, Episode #131 of Co-creating Peace, a podcast series about conscious communication and conflict transformation.

Highlights you won’t want to miss:

  • how – with the right perspective and approach – a stronger, deeper relationship can literally emerge from a fire like a phoenix reborn;
  • a powerful way to rebuild trust;
  • the ways in which a relationship can be strengthened when we go through a difficult experience together;
  • how empathy and acknowledgement can heal the one who gives them as well as the one who receives them.

Joining me to tell you this story are the 3 men who were involved in the incident, Edwin Rutsch, Zak Wear, and Daniel Hirtz.

Zak & Daniel are active members of the Empathy Movement who were at the Empathy Center for the Empathy Facilitator training. You’ll recall Edwin Rutsch from Episode #103, when he shared some truly inspiring information about the Empathy Movement with us.
