Become a More Powerful Peacemaker in Your Family,
Community and Workplace
Explore the Five Core Practices of Compassionate Listening and learn the skills necessary to bring this powerful technique into your daily life. It is a practice that reaches deep into the heart of discord or disconnection, teaching people to listen with a different "ear" to those around them. Its powerful tools help transform the energy of conflict into opportunities for understanding, intimacy at home, healthy relations, productive teamwork, and positive action. It is a practice that provides a roadmap to what sages from all ages and cultures have taught: cultivating the wisdom of the heart is the key to real peace "from the inside out."
This 1-day non-residential workshop provides a basic introduction; participants can attend the second day of the 2-day basic intensive.
