Everybody wants a happy life and a peaceful mind, but we have to produce peace of mind through our own practice. Dalai Lama

What We Do

We build capacity for compassion

Empathy Train is a practise group for individuals and Black women, respectively, using group-based mindfulness inquiry - inspired by the work of Marshall Rosenberg, Robert Gonzales and Byron Katie - to untangle reactivity, build emotional resilience, and train compassion, established by Adigo Atabo in 2021.

In the words of Tara Brach, learning to witness what is going on inside of you is the gateway to inner freedom and deep realisation. It also allows you to show up with compassion for others.

Our Vision

A world of empathy practitioners enacting social change away from the patriarchal paradigm.

Our Offering

An online practise group

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Charles R. Swindoll

What to expect

Each journey lasts for 90 minutes. We start and end with a check-in. In between, we practice slowing down and looking within using a variety of methods, over time a journey of self discovery.

No previous experience is needed, only an openness and curiosity.

What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart. Marshall Rosenberg
