Deep Listening

To truly hear another is the art of bringing embodied awareness, compassionate relationship and supportive presence into our listening.

This way of being enables us to purely receive, this receiving is accompanied by greater clarity, understanding and empathy.

Embodied contemplative practices in the form of compassion, loving kindness and equanimity combined with a spacious, meditative approach allows for an attuned receptivity.

Attuning in this way, we are opening our capacity to experience another as they actually are; rather than distorting phenomena and other through the lens of our subjective perception.

We are opening to what is.
