Listening Circle is where we practice listening and we practice being heard.
It's an extraordinary and transformative thing, allowing ourselves to be deeply heard,
and I know of no deeper longing than that of connection.
Listening Circle is an opportunity to unburden ourselves,
to bring awareness to the undiscussables,
to hold sacred the complexities of our shared humanity.
Listening Circle is a space in which we offer our curiosity and compassion and the generosity of our full attention.
It's a time to experience deep connection as we listen and speak from the heart.
Together, we build and practice empathy as a most important competency.
Each Listening Circle is limited to 5 participants.
Everything shared within the Listening Circle is held in absolute reverence and confidence.
what to expect:
Group Grounding and Welcome
Check-in: how are you arriving to Circle today? What are you bringing with you?
The first person who is moved to speak does so, and speaks from the heart for ten minutes.
We hold space in the Circle for deep attention without interruption, without advice, without assumption.
We listen without waiting for our turn to talk.
We hold our hearts soft and open, we are stones in the river, stories washing over us, shaping us,
and then flowing on to source or sky or sea.
