Being consciously in the “here and now” and creating the conditions for empathetic cooperation.
Who hasn’t experienced this: time and again, my thoughts wander, concentration is lost and mistakes creep in. At the same time, I don’t even notice how my environment is doing and thus miss important moods and changes. All in all – a total loss for me, my employer and my colleagues. But what gets me out of my presence? And can empathy really be learned? Module 2 of the Selfness Starter sheds light on the topics of presence and empathy and uses group work, interactions and role-playing to demonstrate ways in which I can be more aware of my existence in the here and now. Being mindful and aware of my thoughts and state of mind are the prerequisites for “grounding” myself in the moment. Only in this way can I engage and make contact with the “you”. Because compassion with myself and others is important, but compassion does not help anyone!
