Engaging from the Heart: Healing Our World from the Inside Out – in Seattle with Susan Partnow

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 these powerful practices into your daily life.

  • Cultivating Compassion
  • Developing the Fair Witness
  • Respecting Self and Others
  • Listening with the Heart
  • Speaking from the Heart

Compassionate Listening practices reach 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 relationships, productive teamwork, and positive action. Our practices provide 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 the Basic Intensive workshop that has been taught throughout the United States and on other continents for many years. It serves as a great introduction or a perennial refresher for those who have studied before.  Your facilitator, Susan Partnow, is a senior trainer and mentor who co-created the original curriculum and core practices of Compassionate Listening.
