"I'm so happy to have met Rasha and to have taken her wonderful class. Rasha is a talented facilitator and instructor, passionate and knowledgeable about her work, and she made us all feel so comfortable and welcomed in her class.
My favourite part of the class was applying the material Rasha shared to our own lives, through thoughtful questions and personal sharing, which Rasha also participated in. I found some of the inquiry questions and practices, especially around self-empathy, particularly helpful and will carry them forward.
I loved this class and highly recommend it."

"Life has shown me that empathy might be the one thing that if we practice and do it well, we may have a chance of creating a kinder, understanding, happier and just world to live in. With that in my heart, I started to look for places I could deepen my knowledge of empathy.
The CEP program has been the most amazing journey. I never thought I would be able to learn so much, to share so much with people I never met, from different parts of the globe, with such an amazing facilitator as Rasha. I definitely recommend this program and feel I am a much more empathetic person after this course."
