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

9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Deepen Your Exploration of 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 one day session provides Day 2 of the basic introduction for those who have take Day 1 and an opportunity for previous participants to review and deepen their practice. Whereas Day 1 focused on our own stories and self compassion, Day 2 brings us to stepping in the shoes of the other, transforming debate to dialogue and healing connection, and learning from our judgements.
