Thank you, Patrons, for believing in these projects and providing us with resources to create Nothing but Light and Empathy Archive.
 
Empathy archive is a project where people who've had similar experiences get together to have an in-depth discussion about them.
We are striving to create a comprehensive library of videos on a variety of subjects.

Our intention is to record people discussing their real experiences honestly and openly to challenge common misconceptions about the way life is or "should" look like.

These are the conversations scheduled for June:

- two people with cerebral palsy will be talking about sexuality and sex
- two people over 70 will be discussing a poem by Dylan Thomas " Do not go gentle into that good night" and facing the ending of the life 

Below are the topics where I have one person who wants to talk about it and I am looking for a pair. Any subject can be brought up for the discussion. If you want to participate in the conversation already proposed or if you'd like to open a new topic, please contact me.
