Thanks for the response! Coincidentally, I did reach out to a nearby NVC community after receiving the same suggestion from a coach. Let's see how it goes. :)

because I find it that during a conflict, I need empathy so my capacity for empathy towards others is limited, so the first step is to give yourself empathy.

Yeah this is still very tough for me too. I remembered ruminating quite a lot when my need for respect wasn't fulfilled in some online forums. After writing this down, I immediately went to reread some parts of the book. I don't think I've internalised this yet, but small steps... :)


Hi Velizar, I've just finished reading the book, but I'm hoping to do more practice. However, the workshops on are pretty pricey and the timings aren't great for my time zone. Do you have any suggestions? I might miss other practice opportunities.


Hey David, thanks for the feedback! 

1. I did look at Openphil’s grant database back in May and found nothing. Could you point where we could find more information about this?

2. Hmm are you saying an AI-engineered pandemic would likely be similar to natural pandemics we’re already defending against? If so, I would probably disagree here. I’m also unsure how AI-engineered pandemics might create highly novel strains, but I think the risk of this happening seems non-trivial.

And wouldn’t AI accelerate such developments as well?

3. Thanks for the info! I don’t think we have access to a lot of personal views of researchers besides what we’ve seen in literature.

4. Ah did you mean AI x Cybersecurity x Non-LOC risks? That sounds right. I don't think we've actually thought about this. 

Reflecting on this, it feels like we could have done better if we spoke to at least a few researchers instead of depending so much on lit reviews. 

Hi wunan, yes we run the programs monthly. Unfortunately, we don't have any reviews/testimonies written up for the public, but here's a broad feel of our program.

So far, we’ve had a total of 959 participants from the first half of 2021. We also have 289 participants in the July-to-August round which we are currently running with Stanford EA. Our post-program survey response rates are generally quite low at 30%, but feedback for two prior rounds has been positive: the average likelihood of recommending the program to a friend was 9.15 out of 10.
