Empathy is the Pathway to Healing
Audio Nuggets ushers in ’23 with special guest, Ivory Bennett for Episode 9: Empathy is the Pathway to Healing.
Through love, Ivory is reclaiming her voice and right to speak. Her right to full humanity. Her right to heal, practice empathy, and engage in the healing process for herself, so that she can then show up for the collective mission of justice as the throughline.
During this episode, Ivory and MFG revisit their partnership in writing the introduction to NACC’s 4th Edition Red Book, which ultimately was an opportunity to incite change on an individual level. MFG and Ivory hold a set of credentials that remarkably qualify them to critique, love, and stand for justice.
The conversation succeeds in deepening the frame, illustrating the connection that justice-centered practice is self-work first; relationship work first. It is only then that we can embark on a liberatory journey where empathy is the pathway to healing.
