Review for The Compassionate Listening Project, Indianola, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a part of TCLP for over 15 years starting when I saw the video "The Children of Abraham." I recently went on my third delegation, this time as a trainer. I received mentoring from the founder, Leah Green, and can attest to the effectiveness of the skills I learned and now teach. Speaking and listening from the heart is incredibly effective in all situations of conflict whether in the context of family dynamics or political tension. I have now taught these skills in seven different countries and they adapt readily to every culture. The power of listening can be truly transformational when the listener learns to listen without judgment or interrupting. It's a natural skill that we all have and just need to be reminded.

Review for Aleph-Alliance for Jewish Renewal, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Aleph and the entire Jewish Renewal world has changed by life in so many ways. Our community, P'nai Or (Faces of Life) of Portland was created around our beloved Reb Aryeh Hirschfield of blessed memory. Since his unexpected and untimely death this past January, the community has come together in unbelievable ways and has shown that it did not exist merely because of the presence of one man. I have also experienced the teachings of many other Renewal leaders at Aleph sponsored events and independently and have always found that the experience deepened my understanding of myself and the Divine.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it supports member communities and leaders. It is open to how each individual comes to the Divine and honors their ideas and thoughts.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
