Empathy Practice Group is held on Thursdays at 9:30am – 11am at Safe Harbor in Portsmouth:
Learn to Connect To Yourself And Others
“The ability to connect with self and relate to others is the force that moves recovery forward” – and it can be learned!
Using the Connection Practice in Recovery:
• resolves and prevents conflict by increasing rapport and understanding
• taps into your best intelligence for creative problem solving
• creates a heightened sense of belonging, decreasing relapse
• develops greater self-confidence and resilience
• accelerates healing and self-forgiveness, cutting through resistance to change
How the Connection Practice Works:
Combining empathy and insight increases your ability to skillfully respond to whatever comes up in your life.
– Empathy is attained through a conscious connection to your feelings and needs and those of others at any given moment.
– Insight is accessed through heart-brain coherence, which is when the heart, mind and emotions are in sync with one another. Through coherence the reactions of the amygdala (the center of emotional memories in the brain) are reduced and you think more clearly.
