Extinction Rebellion Sydney: Empathy Cafe Series – Exploring our 10 Principles & Values

Friday 7 Aug

1:00 pm

About this event

An Empathy Circle is a process of mutual active listening. As our movement evolves it’s important to keep breathing life into XR’s principles, especially in the ways relevant to the global majority.

Each week Extinction Rebellion Sydney will use the empathy circle process to explore a different XR Principle, starting with inspirational speakers sharing their thoughts on the principle of the day. We’ll then break into Empathy Circles (smaller groups) so you can lend your voice to this conversation. You are welcome to share whatever is alive for you.

We will dialogue about values such as empathy, feelings awareness, mutuality, openness, presence, curiosity, collaboration, trust, common humanity, mutual responsibility, community, etc, etc. Also hear values suggested by participants.

* What does the value mean to you?
* What are your experiences with it and what does it feel like?
* How does it relate to building a Culture of Empathy?
* How does the value relate to the culture created in the Empathy Circle?

Every Friday: 10 am PST – 1 pm EST – 6 pm GMT – 7 pm CET
