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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had hoped in joining the Compassionate Listening delegation to witness in person the courage and creativity of people on all sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: people whom I felt sure were out there but who were not making headlines back home here in Montreal, or anywhere else. My rating "Far exceeds expectations" says it! The strength and heart, the independence of mind, the personal courage and commitment of the diverse range of people we met was amazing, inspiring, life-changing. What a privilege this was. Only now, after a couple of weeks back in Canada, am I beginning to appreciate how few people have the opportunities that we did, to be welcomed into the homes and communities of people on all sides ... This speaks eloquently of the profound trust created by Leah Green and the Compassionate Listening project, something rare and precious. I am now beginning to work with the material I've brought back, to create presentations that have the power to humanize this polarized and politicized conflict through personal testimony, my own as well as that of the people we met. Compassionate Listening is what we urgently need more of, not only in Israel and Palestine but very clearly back here at home as well, in our own families and communities.
