9. The Guru

Susan Sarandon once said, “When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination, the whole world opens up to you.” Indeed.

The Guru is the part of you that has empathy for other people.  By understanding other people, your Guru grows and becomes more knowledgeable.

Mary Gordon, featured in the video above, is an expert on how to help children grow their Guru.  She created a program that goes to schools and helps children learn empathy by watching and interacting with infants.
