Join the Cause: Help Empaths & Sensitives take Cultural Leadership & Power!!!
People who are highly empathic to their own and others feelings often feel overwhelmed by a world that does not support their values and sensitivities. It's time for Empaths to take Cultural Leadership & Power and to build a Culture of Empathy.
It's time to stop feeling defensive and to actively work to take societal and cultural leadership & power. Your skills for developing deeper empathy and connection can heal the world. Let's transform fear, selfishness, greed, judgment, pain, loneliness & alienation to Empathy, Connection, Compassion, Caring, Community, Responsibility, Freedom and Peace.

Ane Axford & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Highly Sensitive People & Empaths

Ane Axford specializes in working with genetically highly sensitive people (HSP).  She hosts websites, a Facebook page, podcasts, workshops and other resources on this.  


Ane says honesty is her most important and value. Honestly sharing your own feelings is a part of being of empathic. For her empathy is like a compass, creating a container for intentional and safe connection for two people to come together on purpose.

How to build a culture of empathy?

 Know where you are coming from with your energy, your focus, and your sensations. Understanding if you are more introverted or extroverted, more analytical or more feeling based, more sensitive or more hardy can allow you to know where you are starting from, where others are starting from, and so where you can come to meet.

Self-Empathy and Self-Compassion. Remember that HSPs must practice empathizing with themselves and showing compassion toward themselves in order to really bring that into experiences with others. Otherwise, they just feel overwhelmed by other's feelings.
