Most of us know empathy as a spontaneous experience.
It just happens to us. We don’t control it, and we don’t really know what to do with it.
However, in the specific context of my work – the application of empathic intelligence as a way of knowing – empathic intelligence is cultivated as a practice, much like meditation. In this way, it becomes an accessible and accurate tool for insight.
Over the next week, I’m going to break down the four keys to unlocking your empathic intelligence. The good news is that they are not difficult. Some of them are familiar – or at least, you think you know them. Some will be new and awkward, so trust and practice are required.
For most, number four will be the most challenging. Not because it is difficult, but in fact, because it is so easy as to seem unbelievable.
The reason I’ve gone through the trouble of creating expandedknowing.com is because I truly believe our innate empathic intelligence is the most powerful tool we have if we wish to address the challenges of our world with compassion and wisdom. I want you to have it. In fact, the world needs you to have it.
