A Practical EmPath

Rewire Your Mind

for more awareness, calm, connection, freedom, harmony, and power

A transformational guide for enhancing communication and personal growth through empathy. Drawing upon Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication (NVC) model, the book presents practical steps for improving relationships in both personal and business spheres, transforming anger, reducing social anxiety, and more.

“I especially loved the many stories and example conversations!”

Swain delves deeper, offering real-world insights emphasizing a conversational use of cognitive empathy he calls “Street empathy.” This fosters a deeper understanding of self and others, blossoming into organic self-defense for those with intense emotions.

The book balances relatable, light-hearted explanation with practical, everyday tools, providing easy accessibility even for newcomers to these concepts.

The title, “A Practical EmPath,” mirrors the dual focus of the content: it is both a guide for empathetic individuals and a roadmap for cultivating empathy, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling life. Swain respects and upholds the integrity of the original NVC framework while enriching it with innovative modifications and additions, providing fresh perspectives on empathy and communication.
