Empathy is a superpower...and you have it! It is a biological, neurological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual imperative....and it is the primary key to deep connections and thriving relationships. Join me as we dig deep into all things empathy.
This week we consider the science of listening and how we can harness the immense power of our brains to assist in engaging each other in empathy. How is it that we are so easily distracted during conversations, and what are some mindful techniques to slow ourselves down.

I believe that we are all built with an instinctual ability to understand each other…across cultures, races, and genders….through the power of empathy. In this episode I continue to describe how this understanding fits into my identity as and empath. It's a combination of science and the esoteric. Come join in on the conversation at empathyand.com
I have been called sensitive my entire life. Over time I've come to understand that my sensitivities give me a different perspective on, and a heightened understanding of others emotions. I've had some really strange encounters, and the only way I can explain it is to call it what it is. I'm an empath. This is the first installment of many where I discuss what that means to me.

What happens when our brains get flooded with stress hormones too much? Can we condition ourselves to primarily see danger? Is it possible to rewire our instinct, through mindfulness and meditation, to make our emotional response serve us properly...rather than drive us to anxiety? Today we discuss this as we learn of the story of Lou Williams, journeyman NBA player and McDonald's fan.
This week I am contemplating the stories we tell ourselves and others…..and why we just might want to remove the word WHY out of our vocabulary. We also discuss the 4 myths of vulnerability popularized by Dr. Brené Brown in her book Daring Greatly.
There is so much more to cover, so you get another round of Empathy & Emotions! We talk through the Buddhist concepts of impermanence and detachment as well as introduce meditation as a valuable tool in the work of empathy.
This is a big one! We discuss the difference between emotions and feelings and how they correspond to the parts of the brain that inform empathy. I also give a perspective on how to minimize taking on others emotions as a possible side effect to empathy.
Empathy is a superpower, and you have it! Join host Michael Scott Evans as he dives in to the worlds of neuroscience, biology, sociology, and spirituality to uncover the depths of our ability to connect to each other!
