A New Compassionate Listening Journey:
Listening with the Heart in Alabama
April 10-18, 2023
Our country continues to suffer from deep racial tensions and increasing political polarization. We can do something about it. Using the peace-making philosophy and powerful tools of Compassionate Listening and Speaking, we can build our skill of deep, empathic listening even in difficult conversations; we can learn to engage in our own self-reflection about our own biases, conscious and unconscious; and we can bring the healing gift of Compassionate Listening to our fellow Americans. Our three decades of experience in conflict zones throughout the world have proven that the practice of Compassionate Listening and Speaking is the surest way to melt fearful hearts, heal conflict, enhance understanding and turn former "enemies" into allies for peaceful coexistence. Join us for our Second Compassionate Listening delegation to Alabama, Oct. 10-18, 2022.
