Some of us are natural-born empaths - those with an exceptional gift for feeling and understanding the emotions, circumstances, and needs of others. But empathy, teaches Karla McLaren, is a universal human skill that we can all learn to awaken and use wisely. With The Art of Empathy, you will learn, step-by-step, the art of experiencing through the eyes and hearts of those around you - and to connect with and support them most effectively. Drawing on insights spanning social psychology, current brain research, and traditional healing and spiritual wisdom, this acclaimed teacher and author shows us how to:

Discover and strengthen this natural social and emotional ability

Move into the felt experience of others with authenticity and respect
Stay rejuvenated on the empathic path through grounding, healthy boundaries, and replenishing with joy

As our social landscape and ways of connecting continue to shift and evolve rapidly, empathy may be the most essential skill for navigating our emotional and interpersonal lives. The Art of Empathy provides us with the insights and training to master its many dimensions.

Exceptional way of explaining emotions.

I confess that it took me a while to find a book that would talk about empathy without being mystic or with too much emphasis on low empath people.
I love the fact that the author went after the science behind empaths and developed this depicted and careful explanation and a training of your own level of empathy.
It was touching and smart and bright and very insightful.
I'm so glad I found this book!
