Event Description: 'Empathy involves connecting, building relationships, listening, and caring for others. Colesante defines empathy as "the intrapersonal realization of another's plight that illuminates the potential consequences of one's own actions on the lives of others" making it possible for us to learn how to act and react responsibly, or even compassionately, towards others. Empathy enables us to reach out and connect with others in our human condition, and it is a crucial need for our species, having an intrinsic evolutionary and neurological basis for development.' www.empathyed.org
'Education of the heart involves teaching love, compassion, justice, forgiveness, mindfulness, tolerance and peace.' The 14th Dalai Lama.
This day conference will look at ways to support educators to build classrooms and life experiences where empathy and education of the heart are underlying foundation of their students’ interactions and ways of being, as well as a goal of their education.
