Compassionate Listening is the art of listening to one another with an open heart and open mind. In this time of uncertainty, fear and frustration, we may learn to listen carefully to each other and find compassion, love and peace.

We will review the Five Practices of Compassionate Listening, Reflective Listening and Mirroring Techniques.

We will share together a demonstration of the techniques and process.  

"Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves. Eventually you may hear the unseen singing softly to itself and to you"  -Rachel Remen
