Living in a sustainable world is important to me - emotionally, financially, physically, and spiritually. In an effort to support mutual sustainability, for every 10 fully paid memberships I offer a cost reduced Sustainability Membership. If the Regular Membership cost is not sustainable for you, please contact me and we can joyfully explore what mutual sustainability looks like.
Develop Personal Resilience
When we cultivate our own personal capacity for empathic listening and a warm loving presence, like strengthening a muscle, it becomes easier to practice empathy - for ourselves and for others. You will be provided the tools and practices that support the development of empathy and resilience. Resilience that empowers you to navigate the inevitable challenges of life with more choice and happiness.
Build Connected Community
Community is key! Resilient individuals build resilient communities. Through group calls and 1:1 partnering, you will have the opportunity to grow your community of support. With a common language and understanding of empathic support, you will belong to an ever expanding community of like-minded, compassionate individuals.
I’m Jenna Card, a practitioner and Certification Trainer Candidate (2018) of Marshall Rosenberg’s NonViolent Communication (www.cnvc.org). I'm also a facilitator, coach and creator of the Everyday Empathy program.
I created the Everyday Empathy program partly in response to people in my own beloved community calling for more support in their lives and partly in response to my own inner desire to offer the teachings and practices that have transformed my relationships and my life.
I have a not-so-secret, secret mission to normalize empathy in the world. I want to live in a world where our first response to an expression of pain (which could look like anger or fear or judgement or even hate) is empathy. Empathy, to me, is the beginning of healing, the beginning of true connection. There are so many reasons empathy can be hard to do and there are even more reasons to do it!
