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

Rating: 1 stars  

I have had the opportunity to take the Intensive Compassionate Listening Intensive two times in Portland, Oregon and I am currently in a weekly practice group

The exercises which were part of the intensive training took me to a much deeper place in understanding what compassionate listening is all about. Having had multiple trainings on communication, intercultural communication, conflict resolution, CL was the most effective and practical. I find myself now consciously using these tools whenever I am “triggered” whether in a family, community or political situation.

After attending an Intensive CL training, I organized a training to be held at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon and am seeing now how a variety of people are applying these skills to their own ministries in the church or their work in various communities.

The leaders of our group were experienced facilitators and I appreciated that they shared their experiences of CL in a variety of cultural and international contexts.

I wish to continue to be a bridge between people of different races, cultures, economic and class groups etc..and CL gives me more tools to work with. I will enthusiastically encourage others to learn, build and practice the skills of compassionate listening to turn possible conflicts into opportunities for dialogue and creative, life giving actions.
