Welcome to Empathy Experiences! Our mission is to bring awareness to the need for empathy and foster empathy between people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and world-views. Taking a multi-disciplinary view to our work we see empathy as:
Empathy training workshops for universities in a series of engaging, interactive sessions. We provide academically robust, multi-dimensional theoretical foundations on empathy, supported by a number of unique methods for developing empathy skills. In a flipped classroom approach participants go on to apply these methods in the real world, working towards their own empathy adventure. See more information here.
India Immersion is a 3 week intensive experience in rural India where participants undertake advanced empathy skills training, supported by our expert team and unique empathy-related pedagogies. Participants connect with villagers to empathise, understand and seed new, innovative approaches to everyday needs. Fully immersing in the environment, way of life and mindset is the ultimate way of developing empathy. It has the potential to be a truly transformative experience!
Organisational consulting creating bespoke empathy training programs for all types of enterprises, whether educational institutions, corporations or social non-profit organisations. We create innovative, achievable and actionable strategies for boosting empathy with internal and external stakeholders, as required. This includes a diagnosis of the empathy challenge, followed by development of a suitable plan, and leadership of implementation.
Nathan is a passionate, dynamic leader, educator and thinker on the essential form of human interaction and understanding, empathy.
In Nathan's view, the world is made up of human connections. A well functioning global society needs empathy... much more empathy... in order to adapt to an increasingly diverse, globalised world. Empathy cannot be taught by theory alone. That is why we created Empathy Experiences to facilitate authentic, hands-on, experiential learning of the multiple dimensions relating to how humans understand each other.
Nathan works as teaching/learning academic at UTS, co-founder of Empathy Experiences, co-founder of Drishtee Immersion, and has been researching and facilitating empathy since 2011. Read more on professional & educational experience here.
