Following on from the last episode Empathy With My Enemies, I ask the question what supports empathy? How can we be more empathic.
To help me answer this question I’ve roped in a special guest – psychotherapist, Buddhist priest and writer of novels and self-help books, Satya Robyn.
Satya also happens to be married to me, and we co-run the temple here in Malvern.
We talk about the therapy/client relationship, emapthy in friendships and how spiritual experience can support empathy.
Apologies for the slightly echoey audio in the conversation. I had a one microphone set up and as we were different distances from the mic you could hardely hear Satya on the recoding 🙁 I fiddled around for ages to get the levels right, but there were some unwanted side effects. I’m still learning!
