The empath popup ran from June 14 to June 29, 2019. It provided empathy to some 1,500 people in one form or another. As far as we know, it stands as the world’s first retail store offering empathy and human connection as its primary products (though we didn’t sell much - mostly gave it away).

Upcoming Events

Nearly all events are open to the public. Some will be free (or pay what you feel), some will be ticketed, some will be improvised. We’ve got, say, 20-ish seats? Our programming principle is emergence.

We may sage you when you walk in. We may not.

Subject to loving improvisation (aka change!)

Lots of hanging out going on. At least on day one. We may get more organized. But it’ll still be spontaneous and emergent. Promise.
