Learning to Listen: The Heart of Relating Five Tuesdays, 1.5-hour sessions Tuesdays: July 4, 11, 18, 25, August 1, 2023 (5 sessions) Online on Zoom – Interactive Practice
This 5-session course will give you expert guidance and practice in learning to listen to important people in your life --- your partner, child, friend and co-workers. In this workshop series, you will:
• Practise listening to different people to appreciate the variety of styles of expression and delivery and how you attune to each person differently.
• Respond to another to show that you hear not only the information they share, but also their thoughts, feelings, expectations, desires and longings. • Discover your own barriers to listening.
This is a course in self and other discovery of the rich and complex inner world of humans and how being heard is one of the most healing gifts you can give and receive from one another.
Learning to listen is always better with people important to you. Bring your family to join us for 5 evenings of immersive experience!
