Could we change the world around us if we took the time to deeply listen? In moments of chaos, speed and aggression, is there a way to tune into our awareness and connect with the people around us? Without conversation, can we ever truly grow and learn as a society?
Listening is the first step in good conversation. By truly listening to others, we let go of our agenda and step out of our comfort zone. We broaden our understanding of social reality and thus our capacity to help. Through listening, we learn to speak with kindness.
But with distraction and noise in our world at an all-time high, how do we know who—and what—to listen to? What keeps us steady in the fray, and loyal to compassion?
In this experiential workshop, we will explore these questions and practice mindful listening from the heart, listening both to ourselves and to others. The event will culminate with a panel featuring special guest speakers. Tickets are available for the workshop or for the panel only.
