Event Details


Become a More Powerful Peacemaker in Your Family,
Community and Workplace

Explore the Five Core Practices of Compassionate Listening and learn the skills necessary to bring this powerful technique into your daily life.

  • Holding Compassion for Oneself and Others
  • Suspending Judgment
  • Maintaining Balance in the Heat of Conflict
  • Listening with the Heart
  • Speaking from the Heart

Compassionate Listening is a practice that reaches deep into the heart of discord or disconnection, teaching people to listen with a different "ear" to those around them. Its powerful tools help transform the energy of conflict into opportunities for understanding, intimacy at home, healthy relations, productive teamwork, and positive action. It is a practice that provides a roadmap to what sages from all ages and cultures have taught: cultivating the wisdom of the heart is the key to real peace "from the inside out."

This is a 2-day non-residential workshop.

The session will serve as the Basic Intensive for newcomers and an opportunity for previous participants to review and deepen their practice. It is a pre-requisite for the Advanced Training.

Andrea Cohen is a communications consultant, project developer, and certified Compassionate Listening facilitator who has been involved with The Compassionate Listening Project since its inception. She is the director of the TCLP film Children of Abraham and is co-director of the Jewish-German Reconciliation Project.

Susan Partnow is co-founder of Conversation Cafes, Let’s Talk America and Global Citizen Journey. She is a former teacher and speech pathologist, author of Everyday Speaking for All Occasions, certified mediator and an organizational development consultant/trainer for over 20 years, with an M.A. from Northwestern University.

Cost: Total cost for the two-day workshop is $350 - $175; for one day only, the total cost  is $175 - $90.  You'll be able to choose what you pay within this range at the end of the workshop. Those able and willing to contribute at the higher end help support our ability to provide partial scholarships for those who are in need.

The Compassionate Listening Project

Our formal training program, in existence for approximately fourteen years, is aimed at deepening people's ability to listen with an open heart in difficult situations and learning to humanize those we consider "other". We are grateful to the many people we have learned from over the years who have helped make Compassionate Listening the profound practice it is today.
