Listening Beyond What You Hear: The Practice of Engaged Listening

Bringing all our senses to what we hear for deeper meaning and greater understanding

“The most important thing in communication is hearing what is not spoken” Peter Drucker

Listening is most frequently associated with hearing through the ears but we have many sources of hearing, through our heart, our intuition and all of our senses. Engaging and listening with our body awareness and intelligence is a practice of quiet patience, which frees us up from the chatter of inner and outer voices and the desensitizing sounds of telephones, computers and environmental noise. Engaged listening is hearing between words and beyond what is spoken, focusing on listening to what the speaker holds relevant, essential and most important. Through the practice of holistic listening, we can increase our self-awareness to become more aligned with, and authentically present in our actions. This experiential, reflective workshop provides multiple opportunities for participants to practice and expand their listening capacity and capability.
