LIVE MIND LEARNING: Dare to See Through Other Eyes
EMPATHY IS A CHOICE WE MAKE EVERY DAY.
LIVE MIND LEARNING is a creative, ethical, and collaborative enterprise that empowers individuals and organizations to learn empathy as a skill that builds partnerships, promotes compassionate communication, and transforms communities. In educational workshops and ongoing community-based projects, Live Mind combines innovative learning, intercultural and trauma-informed approaches, and community outreach to promote understanding and healing across communities in the Twin Cities — and throughout the US and the world. Interactive workshops (designed with educational & healthcare communities in mind, yet applicable to a range of learning spaces and workplaces) include: Empathy & Building Healthy Communities, Empathy in the Classroom, Empathy & Healing in Times of Violence.
LIVE EYE PHOTOGRAPHY uses visual and narrative tools to document everyday life as we experience it in our senses, bodies, communities -- and to tell stories that powerfully encounter other lives, voices, ways of seeing and being in the world. With empathy as the foundation for all interactions, workshops and photo projects become a catalyst for collaborations within and across communities from Minneapolis and Los Angeles to Belfast and Berlin, a creative and ethical vehicle for experiencing each others' lives and seeing through other eyes.
