Online Programs & Courses

One of the most important things I (John) have discovered in my 20+ years of work in this space, is that furthering this kind of learning works best in a learning community. Developing these skills to be able to respond to the growing challenges in our personal lives and what’s happening in the world takes time and lots of practice and support. So, I’ve created an Empathy & Mindfulness in Conversation online community (hosted on a platform called Mighty Networks), a Foundations Self-Guided Program, and weekly live-session courses to support you and help you build empathic community.

You can start by joining the Empathy & Mindfulness in Conversation online community. It's FREE to join. The online community offers different topic discussion areas to engage in and a wide variety of information and resources, as well as live online events and group meetings with me that I offer regularly. The community is also about meeting, connecting and interacting with others who share your interests and values, and who can be sources of inspiration and support as we navigate the growing challenges and difficulties in our world. You can coordinate empathic conversation practice with other community members, and even connect with people who live near you! I believe building empathic community and support is crucial to growing our resilience, experiencing health and wellbeing, and being able to respond to the enormous difficulties ahead.
