In a world where direct human contact has fallen to the side, The Listening Project aims to listen to people with complete and undivided attention.
Two chairs. Five minutes. As society continues to speed up around us and our interactions become increasingly digitized, we spend less and less time focused on one another in person. When was the last time someone gave you their complete and undivided attention or listened to you completely without saying anything? And on the flip side when was the last time you offered this to another?
We have held this event four times with 35 official listeners and over 250 participants.
Volunteers from our community receive training around listening and together, we explore the practice, skill and gift of listening. We discover the joy of creating a space of presence, acceptance and love.
