Culture of Empathy Builder:  Eva Vigran

 

Eva Vigran & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Dance 

Eva Vigran is the funder of Coreconnexion.net -  Dancing Life from Your Core!
It is an invitation to enter your own dance, wisdom and resources, connecting with aliveness, freedom and interconnection with all living beings. It is a movement and transformational arts practice for personal and professional development, which inspires and transforms people from all over the world.

Empathy is like water, it flows and takes any shape. The opposite of empathy is like cold hard ice.  In the dance we begin with self-empathy, by feeling into ourselves, melting the stress points, finding out what is going on in our bodies. We get away from the words and can feel our breath and gravity. We can then start to feel and empathize with others. Our drop of water merges with others and we become a third body.
