Embodied Listening, Northumberland, UK. 13 -14 July 2019

Embodied Listening is a way of compassionate listening that enhances and benefits any communication. This weekend training is interactive and experiential. Meditation and compassion methods are combined with specially designed exercises to help develop greater listening skills. Described as enjoyable and transformative by our participants, this method harnesses the power of being present while listening so we can truly hear and respond to what is being communicated. 

Many of us have experienced what it is like not to be listened to. Also many of us have struggled when listening to another. Perhaps wishing to say the right thing, to give advice or feeling stressed when the conversation becomes difficult. Listening can then become exhausting and stressful. This course will show you how change any stresses of listening so that listening is enjoyable for you and beneficial for the other person.

There are two basic skills explored and learnt in Embodied Listening. 

These are quietening the mind and following the speaker. Quietening the mind happens when fully present. We find the peaceful silence within ourselves and truly hear what the other is saying.  Following the speaker is following the flow of communication, staying right there with the other person, without pre-empting their journey or rescuing them from crossing difficult terrain. As the Listener we also refrain from interposing our own destination.
