ep #8: listening to the wounds

"Deep listening is the kind of listening that can help relieve the suffering of another person. You can call it compassionate listening. You listen with only one purpose: to help him or her to empty his heart."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

the through-line of today's conversation is that of listening. specifically our focus is on the impacts of wounding on our ability to listen, a topic we bring to life through personal anecdotes. we share tools & strategies that we've found effective both personally & professionally.

we extend the invitation to build/deepen your listening practice by incorporating a framework developed by Elden. you can access a free pdf guide titled "something about listening via the link below.
