Course details

Three spacious days on the peaceful island of Lambay learning to deepen your listening skills and connect better with yourself and others. This training is for professionals for whom listening to clients is a key part of their work and anyone who is curious about the power of listening. It combines the retreat experience with a new set of practical tools.

The course includes

  • experiential and interactive exercises
  • meditative and reflective methods
  • interactive group work in pairs and small groups
  • practical ways of integrating the method into your personal and professional relationships
  • opportunities to explore the island and embed the learning. The natural beauty of Lambay lends itself to contemplation and helps to re-create a sense of island peace within ourselves.

The island chef will prepare delicious and nourishing food for us to enjoy together over the 3 days.

There are only 12 places available, so early booking is advised.
