When we are connected to ourselves, we are also connected to the people around us. It’s hard to find words to describe this field. We are connected in such a way that it hardly makes sense to talk about us as separate beings. There’s just a sense of compassionate presence, intense closeness, and empathy.
“I’ll Meet You There is a wise, unique and beautifully written history of empathy and why empathy is important in experiencing compassion. This is a book for anyone who wants hope for living in a peaceful, humane world, and who wants a guide for how to get there.”
Mary Mackenzie, M.A., Founder of the NVC Academy and author of Peaceful Living: Daily Meditations for Living in Peace, Healing and Compassion.
“Shantigarbha has written an excellent book on empathy that teases out the centrality of this value in Buddhism as the foundation for the cultivation of compassion (karuna) and loving kindness (metta).”
Stephen Batchelor, author.
