Prophets, poets, and spiritual teachers throughout history have identified empathy as a transformative state that can supply a taste of the vast, mysterious reality that we all share, despite our differing lived experiences that are difficult to reconcile. Modern psychologists and neuroscientists are beginning to explore why this is and how it works from a scientific humanist perspective. This Sunday, we'll explore developing different forms of empathy through readings, music, and guided practices. Many thanks to the attendees of our Sunday morning Ideas Worth Contemplating series who brought this topic to the worship team after a spirited discussion of psychologist Jamil Zaki's TEDx talk, "We're experiencing an empathy shortage, but we can fix it together."
