Empathy Circles - Lidewij Niezink, PhD Empathy Circles: Building a Culture of Empathy In 2012 I joined forces with Edwin Rutsch of the Center for Building a Culture of Empathy and Compassion. Edwin is building an Empathy Movement and together we have developed Empathy Circles as a hands-on instrument in building a culture of empathy. Most materials are available through this site.

We are currently developing a handbook as well as a facilitator's guide for the circles.

DMC Community Shows Compassion for Syrian Refugees by the Box-load - HCT News The HCT-Dubai Men’s College (DMC) community has dug deep and demonstrated its compassion and care for the plight of Syrian refugees by generously donating over 200 boxes of goods to the Emirates Red Crescent organization. The selfless humanitarian efforts come as a result of a group of DMC students who created and coordinated a refugee fundraising campaign, which ran from March 6-24, as part of their General Studies Community Service course. The students reached out to the student body and the wider DMC community through the clever use of social media platforms and face-to-face engagement, whereby they sought donations of a variety of items such as clothing (including shoes), sheets and blankets, medical supplies (bandages, band aids, wraps, cotton wool), rope, soaps, lighting (torches), tissues, can openers, hairbrushes and hair bands, water aids (soluble tablets), baby food (soft packets), cereals, dates, rice, flour and canned foods.

Jeremy Rifkin: 'Empathic Civilization': When Both Faith And Reason Fail, Stepping Up To The Age of Empathy While our radio talk shows and 24-hour cable TV news programs incessantly play off the political rift between conservative and liberal ideologies, the deeper conflict in America has always been the cultural divide between faith versus reason. At the dawn of the modern market economy and nation-state era, the philosophers of the Enlightenment challenged the Age of Faith that governed over the feudal economy with the Age of Reason. Theologians and philosophers have continued to battle over faith vs. reason ever since, their debates often spilling over into the cultural and political arenas, with profound consequences for society. Today, however, at the outset of a global economy and the biosphere era, a new generation of scientists, scholars, and social reformers are beginning to challenge some of the underlying assumptions of both the Age of Faith and the Age of Reason, taking us into the Age of Empathy.
