What is the difference between empathy and compassion versus identification? How can one be in service to a particular situation without matching the energy of that trauma? José guides us through many practices on how to step back and see all parts within a situation in order to assess what is needed to then formulate a plan of action.

    Learning to pull back our own projections clears our vision.
    Standing on that threshold of the unknown and relying on our own intuition is both thrilling and at times unnerving. Learning to
    stand in our power is a awesome gift. Thanks for sharing
