Hi all,
    I'm wondering who'd like an empathy relationship. Who'd like to share an hour a week, or half hour every other week, talking about whats coming up in your life, and receive only empathy and needs guesses. Sometimes we need help calming our Amigdella's, and outside support is necessary. I'll try to find matches when people tell me what times work for them, so please include that in your response (ie. what evenings in the week have a slot you can carve out for an hour, or maybe you're a morning person, or you'd like to go on walks together, giving empathy as you go). Let me know, and I'll match people. I've got 11 names already courtesy to the work done by Sandy last summer:
    Sandy
    Farhat
    Geoff
    Kasandra
    Christina
    Roya
    Jill
    Csaba
    Uta
    Carine
    Ian

This could be some sweet empathy, Mark

Hi there, I'm interested in having an empathy buddy and meeting on the phone every couple of weeks.  I could also meet sometimes when I am in Vancouver as I live on the Sunshine Coast.

I'm looking forward to having a chance to further practise reflecting feelings and needs in exchange for same.

Thanks, Gwen

I am also interested in being empathy buddies with someone.  I am doing the compassionate communication annual course 2015 and I'm working through the week by week lessons - if anyone is doing that AND wants to be empathy buddies that would be amazing!

Hi Gwen,
 
Hi Janice,

I just wrote out to the 11 on the list above to get new interest in setting something up. I asked them to reply with times that work for them during the week and I'll ask you the same. Then I'll collect all the data and find possible matches.

I regret Gwen, that it's taken a month-and-a-half to get back to you. I really value exspediency. Sorry I couldn't some through this time. Could you let me know how you hear this? I"m guessing you need to be heard, and your 'interest' to be spoken to. 

Thankful, Mark

Hi Gwen and Janice,

I haven't got any response from my emailing to the list above. Do you want to partner together? or share calls with me? ( I could use another empathy buddy)

It may be easier to find a time that works for each of us over the phone. Please exchange numbers amongst yourselves.

Hello Mark,

I am just wondering if the search and matching for empathy buddies is still open as I would be interested in participating.  I am new to NVC so just beginning to learn and am hoping that someone would be willing and available to connect.  I could be available Wednesday evenings from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Thank You!

Frances

Hi Mark,

 I'd love to participate in matching Empathy Buddies too. Best to have someone experienced and female for me. I've been part of NVC for 12 years, just not able to go to workshops due to single parenting. Best times for me are during the day from 9-11am or 2-4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Open to weekly or bi-weekly. Meeting in person or by phone.
