How would you like to live your life as one fully engaged from the heart? Come join us in this deep and powerful practice. You will learn to step out of the drama triangle of victim-perpetrator-rescuer to live fully empowered, speaking and listening from the heart, cultivating compassion and respect for self and others, managing your triggers, building your capacity for connection and authenticity. As a Compassionate Listener, you can help bring peace and healing to your life and our world. Many professionals, teachers, parents, counselors, coaches, mediators, etc. have found their work greatly supported through integrating the practices of Compassionate Listening. Your personal and professional life will be enhanced, with improved relationships with family, friends and co-workers, helping to bring positive transformation to our world – and bring compassionate nurturing to yourself. You will develop skills in our five core practices: Cultivate Compassion; Develop the Fair Witness; Respect Self and Others; Listen with the Heart; Speak from the Heart.
Join us September 20/21, Sat/Sun 9:30 to 6 p.m at 6827 Oswego Pl NE, Seattle, WA 98115 (near Greenlake)
