Ep.10 – I Feel You | 7keys: Empathy – Part 1

Empathy. It’s the 4th key of courageous self-expression and lubricant for connection. Building upon the first three keys, Candice invites you to look closely at how you show up to support others, particularly when strong emotions are at play. She offers a variety of personal stories to illustrate, revealing shameful mistakes she’s made along the way, moments when she failed to offer what was needed in the face of shared vulnerability. You’ll learn about three different types of empathy, and how ‘emotional intelligence’ is a developmental journey that has everything to do with where (and how) our inner and outer worlds continually intersect. And then, we wrap up this part 1 empathy exploration with a candid peek at the role that shame – and cancel culture – play in exacerbating divisions and discouraging accountability. It’s a jam-packed episode that will inspire you toward a more practical and embodied approach to everyday compassion.
