Empathy – The Secret to Happy Relationships (Cork)

Empathy is at the very heart of positive human connection. 

Empathic people communicate very skillfully with people, they have more love and connection in their relationships, they are happier as a result.  They can deeply understand others’ situations, being able to imagine how it feels for them, and what they are experiencing. 

“We will become more open to others point of view, more tolerant and more understanding and we will naturally treat others with greater respect and consideration” Geshe Kelsag Gyatso

The wonderful news is we can all become more empathic. In our communities, our workplaces, our families, empathy is key to help us embrace each other’s similarities and differences.  

Join us for this 3 week course with Kelsang Drolma where we will explore  tried and tested methods Buddha taught to increase our connection with others, our empathy, love, and compassion.
