Compassionate Listening and Speaking: Changing the World from the Inside Out

Free
Sun Apr 24, 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM (EDT)
Zoom  

Learning to listen with an open-heart, even to our "enemies," is the key to bringing about transformations in attitudes and behavior. In this class, we'll talk about the work of Compassionate Listening over the last thirty years in conflict zones abroad and we will see how the same basic principles help us humanize "the other" here in our own communities. We'll get a chance to practice with each other during this class, an experience which always helps us gain insights about what keeps us from being able to listen when we don't agree. Compassionate Listening is a powerful peace-making tool which can help us resolve conflict and deepen our relationships. We hope you'll join us!
