If recent history has taught us anything, it is that we are in this together... whether we like it or not. We may not agree on how we got here, or where we're going, but if we don't learn to listen to one another, we're in trouble. Empathy for A**holes is a course in perspective-taking for people who have a hard time relating to the effed up viewpoints of others. Developed by an ethnographer with a knack for non-judgment, this workshop teaches advanced skills of observation and self-awareness to seekers and cynics alike. Learn how to genuinely hear, understand, and at least partially respect just about any bonkers, bananas, or bullsh*t point of view you could possibly imagine. And get yours heard and understood, too. It's useful, fun, and even kinda spiritual.
