Description

October 28 - Compassionate Listening Workshop Comox Valley
CVGAN in collaboration with Naomi Wolfe

Compassionate Listening: Healing the World from the Inside Out – An Introduction
Session Description: The Compassionate Listening Project teaches powerful skills for peacemaking in our families, communities, on the job, and in peace or social justice work locally and globally. In our busy, fast-paced and information-filled lives, how much time do we take to really listen? How can we offer listening as a gift in a way that others feel heard, understood, affirmed and valued? In this highly interactive workshop, participants can build on the listening skills they already have, and learn to tune into the underlying values reflected in words, leading to deeper understanding and connection. Listening deeply in challenging situations requires a real willingness to both acknowledge and set aside our judgments and assumptions so that we can truly hear what is being expressed by others. This workshop offers participants an opportunity to become aware of their own listening challenges and practice new ways of listening by “letting go of the steering wheel” in conversations and dialogues. Compassionate Listening helps us to cultivate the wisdom of the heart, allowing us to transform separation and conflict into an opportunity for connection, healing and peace.
