Level 1 Deep Listening Training Intensive, Ireland. 30 September - 4 October 2020

Deep Listening is a complete practical training using the transformational method of Awareness Centred Deep Listening Training ACDLT® designed by Rosamund Oliver, which harnesses the life-changing potential of bringing simple awareness to listening.

Participants will find that this course complements their existing communication skills as they personally experience the ability of the natural listening mind to hold a safe listening container. 

Participants gain information about their own way of listening through a variety of interactive situations designed to reflect what is truly happening in listening. This approach is suitable for communicating with people from all walks of life and with all types of team working. Appreciating our different ways of communication is central to this work.
