Jennifer Moore, author of Empathic Mastery joins us to share some insights into that experience, and how it can affect our relationships...

    One of our many limitations as human beings is our limited perspective. Most of the time, we only view the world from our own frame of reference. While, of course, this is natural and normal, it may not always give us a clear picture.... or the full picture. Reacting to what life presents us from that limited or even distorted perspective may not always serve us well. If we are upset, our view can become even more limited, constric...

    Most people see the legal arena as a place to do battle, a place where we annihilate the person we see as our opponent. We seek an attorney to be our warrior to win the legal battle for us. What if there was another way? What if attorneys took a different approach, one where they would still be an advocate and champion the cause of their client, but without long drawn-out battle and attempts at mutual annihilation?  What might be p...
