Empathy Tent
Building a Culture of Empathy and Compassion.

The Empathy Tent is an open and eclectic space for people to foster the values of empathy, compassion, connection, caring, community, freedom, peace, nonviolence, justice, empathic action, etc. Our intention is to build a culture of empathy where everyone is included, feels fully heard and accepted and we take empathic action together to transform our society.

 

“By peace we mean the capacity to transform conflicts with empathy, without violence,
and creatively - a never-ending process;” Johan Galtung
