Too often, we regard listening as waiting for an opportunity to interrupt.
Or else as ‘active listening’: that weirdly fidgety preoccupation of mentally checking off a checklist list of ‘shoulds’ and ‘should nots’, endless micro-tyrannies we can obey and designed to make us believe we look like we’re listening.
And, yet listening can itself be healing.
Q. What does it mean to really, really listen?
Q. How does it feel when we do?
Q. How does it feel to be really listened to?
We will share simple ideas that we can use to begin listening more fully.
We will practice grappling with each and we will reflect together on our expériences.
And it will be enough: because listening – really listening – is healing,
and healing is hard work.
