Compassionate Listening is a foundational skill-set designed to empower individuals and communities to build cultures of peace in the fabric of their everyday lives and in the world.
As peacemakers, we learn to move beyond a mindset that dehumanizes and demonizes the ‘other’, seeking instead to listen, to feel compassion for, and to see ourselves in the ‘other’, the ‘other’ in ourselves. The Compassionate Listening Project offers practices that reach deep into the heart of discord, teaching people to listen with a different “ear” to those around them, strengthening our capacity for peace in each moment.
