Welcome to Empathetic People Network

A safe place for kind humans

What is this place?

Empathetic People Network is a heart-on-sleeve global community of like-hearted human beings who believe that empathy is the better path and who are deeply burdened to make this planet kinder, more generous, and more loving than they found it.

EP is lovingly curated and hosted by author and storyteller John Pavlovitz and a team of caring people who are passionately committed to helping others grow both individually and collectively.


Why should I join the network?

There is so much waiting here for you at EP but here are just a few perks of membership (every plan gets these benefits):

  • Breakout affinity groups where you can meet with people to talk about specific topics in depth.

Give what you can—get our best either way!

Membership plans begin at just $4.99 a month. All plans include a monthly or yearly payment option, which is discounted.

All plans give you the same great benefits (which you can see when you click on an individual plan).

If you are able and would like to support at a higher level, you can also do that. Your contributions allow us to expand the services we can offer and the work we do on the site and beyond.

If you can’t afford the $4.99 membership, let us know and we will gladly scholarship you in!
