For all the advances in technology, for all the hours invested in caring and serving, for all the efforts to connect, evidence shows personal levels of isolation, anxiety, fragmentation and discontent are on the rise.  One readily restorative response to these chronic experiences is discovering and deepening the transformational dynamic of Generous Listening.

Powered by compassion and curiosity, Generous Listening awakens our heart's ear, connects us beyond the words of the other to their humanity, and fosters a vital openness to that which has not yet been heard.  To listen generously is to meet chronic disconnection with courageous presence.  

This two-session event (with an extra self-guided practice/reflection experience between the sessions)
deepens generous listening with ourselves, others and nature through conversations, personal practices, and of course listening.

PLUS a self-guided at-home practice/reflection experience between sessions.

Registration Fee: $55
