Culture of Empathy Builder:  Alice Aird

 

Alice Aird & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy

Alice Aird lives in Melbourne, Australia and is Founding Director of the Empathy Foundation.  She hosts the EmpathyFoundation.Ning.com site for growing empathy and says, " I have come to understand that empathy grows empathy, and that the greater the human capacity for empathy the greater our ability to cooperate in creating a peaceful and sustainable world. So that's we what are working on here at the Empathy Foundation - practicing empathy and growing more of it in the world. Universal empathy is possible.

My mission is to create empathic parenting for purpose. It's a long term project, and may not be achieved in my life time - I'm sure many others will be involved. Also I have much healing of my own wounds to do (empathically)." My top three ways to grow a culture of empathy are;

1. Raise children with empathy, and grow their empathy centres of the brain.

2. Expand parents/teachers/caregivers awareness of empathy, it's value, and how to grow it - with great empathy.

3. Honor the unique purpose inside everyone of us, child and adult, and empathetically support each other in the difficult journey to manifesting it.
