Banyen's Description: 

What if there were a single skill that could directly and radically improve your relationships and your emotional life? Empathy, teaches Karla McLaren, is that skill. With The Art of Empathy, she teaches us how to perceive and feel the experiences of others with clarity and authenticity—and so to connect with them more deeply and effectively.

Informed by current insights from neuroscience, social psychology, and healing traditions, this book explores:

  • Why empathy is not a mystical phenomenon but a natural, innate ability that we can strengthen and develop
  • How to identify and regulate our emotions and boundaries
  • The process of shifting into the perspective of others
  • How to provide support in a sensitive and healthy way
  • Insights for navigating our hyper-connected social landscape
  • Targeted chapters for improving family, workplace, and intimate relationships
  • Ways to expand our empathy to our community, global levels of society, and the natural world.

 In this book, you’ll learn how to access the often-hidden world of empathy, emotional awareness, and the interactional space that surrounds you. You’ll also learn how to bring skills and organization to your empathy so that it will become a dependable and valuable resource for you and your friends, your family, your loved ones, your colleagues, and our waiting world…

You can learn how to become a healthy, happy, and intentional empath who works with emotions instead of working against them—and instead of being worked over by them!

Also by Karla McLaren is The Language of Emotions: What Your Feelings Are Trying to Tell You.
