Class 4 Summary (August 28,2019)
In Class 4 we covered “Rumbling With Vulnerability,” and the topics of Shame and Empathy. In the safe “container” of our small groups, we were honest about when and how we experience shame. Then we discovered how empathy is the antidote to shame, and how we prefer to give and receive empathy.
