When I was first learning Nonviolent Communication, empathy guessing seemed magical and mysterious. How could that other person have known something about me that I hadn’t actually shared? And how could they see inside me, often in ways that I had missed myself?!
While empathy is both intuitive and an art form, there is also a science to it. In this brief yet fascinating introduction to Dian’s course, Empathy Magic, you’ll learn a super-practical way to demystify empathy guessing by making use of the root meaning of words.

This session is part of a daylong telethon that takes place on an annual basis to underwrite the NVC Academy’s programs. See the entire lineup of 12 presentations by Dian’s colleagues from the Center for Nonviolent Communication.
The session is also a preview of a 6-week online course from May 8 – June 12, 2019, by the same name. This course will take place on Zoom, an easy-to-use video conferencing software available to anyone with a computer or smartphone and a high-speed internet connection. Instructions about how to join the sessions will be sent upon registration.
