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

Rating: 5 stars  

I became aware of the Compassionate Listening Project in 2010 from a professor at Antioch University. He said that CLP offered great trainings and facilitated grassroots, life changing work. Having gone through three of their trainings since 2011 and having participated as a delegate on one of their trips to Israel/Palestine, I am in complete agreement. Teaching individuals the skills to re-humanize their ‘enemy’ is a profound and transformative gift that is desperately needed in the world. Learning to compassionately listen to the ‘other’, humanizes both the speaker and the listener. CLP instills dignity, respect and empathy into difficult interactions, allowing space to safely experience and reflect on emotions, perceptions, beliefs and values, and where both parties are changed at the end of a session. I continuously use these skills while working on issues related to classism, racism, sexism and privilege. William Osmun
