Episode Description:

On March 13th,The Sixteenth Annual Gathering for Changing Maine was held at the Maine State Arboretum in Augusta. The Subject this year was "Practicing Nonviolence in Our Daily Lives and in the World". Over 50 activists from throughout Maine spent the whole Saturday at presentations and workshops involving nonviolence.
Wells Staley-Mays of Peace Action Maine started the event with a description of what nonviolence is. He then introduced Peggy Smith, the first Mainer to be certified by the Center for Nonviolent Communication. Peggy, a retired school teacher, focused on "Empathy for Activists". After Peggy's presentation, you will have a much better understanding of empathy and what it really is. She will then take you, step-by-step, through the process of being a better (and nonviolent) listener through empathy.
This episode outlines a path that allows the viewer to participate in a life of listening with empathy and in "presence".
I follow the piece with a somewhat comical, but unfortunately true, Andy Rooneyesque spoof on begging junk mail.
