Review for The Compassionate Listening Project, Indianola, WA, USA
I began learning Compassionate Listening as part of a workshop 3 years ago. Through the exercises we learned to understand, be present, and respond to the stories that people tell about significant experiences in their lives. The skills I learned in that workshop, and at practice groups that I attend about once a month give me more confidence to deal with stressful situations and expressions. I have the choice to respond with compassion, and that is liberating for me.
Being consistent and continuing the training are key to staying in the practice. The books, videos, and suggestions distributed by Compassionate Listening Project are most helpful.
