COURSE DESCRIPTION: 
As every spiritual master recognizes, listening is one of the most precious gifts we can give to another human being, in the workplace as well as in our home life.  How do we provide this gift to those with whom we work, to those with whom we have business transactions? What are the baseline skills that contribute to heart-to-heart connections – and how do we bring them into our everyday business lives?

We recognize that staying connected to our own hearts and deepest values, particularly in the heat of conflict or stressful situations, can profoundly impact those around us.

The practice of Compassionate Listening builds the foundation for trust, connection, compassion, respectful dialogue and ultimately for creating sustainable changes in the human environment within families, schools, workplaces and communities. This workshop will provide Compassionate Listening theory and walk people through basic experiential exercises related to the five core practices listed below. It will help participants see that each of us has the choice to create a culture of peace in our daily work lives.

Our powerful exercises enable participants to begin listening with a different ear to themselves and the people closest to them.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
After the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the core practices of Compassionate Listening

Deepening Compassionate Engagement – World Work from the Heart

With Andrea Cohen and Susan Partnow

Strengthen your ability to be a positive force in the world with the courage and humility needed to be effective and “take a stand.”

Whether your area of leadership is in the workplace, the community, or the arena of politics, this workshop will be helpful. We’ll explore issues of rank, privilege, internalized and systemic oppression, grief, and forgiveness – and practice ‘sitting in the fire’ with people of divergent backgrounds and perspectives.

On each step of the journey, you’ll integrate more deeply the wisdom of mind, body and spirit in service of creating a healthier planet and more peaceful world.

This is a 2-1/2 day workshop (Saturday, Saturday evening and Sunday). Prior experience with basic Compassionate Listening practices is recommended.

Cost: Total cost for the workshop is $195 – $395. 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.

World Work from the Heart: Compassionate Listening Advanced Practice

How can we work more deeply from a compassionate heart in our endeavors to transform our world? Come to this 2-day session to develop your skills in the realm of work and community development, being an ally, large group interaction, and leadership. We’ll focus on issues of rank, privilege, internalized and systemic oppression, grief, and forgiveness – and practice ‘sitting in the fire’ with those with whom we disagree. Through a combination of practices, we’ll work to strengthen our ability to be a positive force in the world – with the courage, knowledge and humility needed to “take a stand.”

On each step of the journey, you’ll integrate more deeply the wisdom of mind, body and spirit in service of creating the world we long for. Explore with us in this laboratory for growth and connection.

The session is designed to deepen your skills in Compassionate Listening and to integrate them more fully into your daily experiences. The Basic Intensive, Compassionate Listening Intensive: Healing the World from the Inside Out, is a pre-requisite for this Advanced Intensive.  If you have not received prior training with us, please contact Andrea (cohencomm@comcast.net 206.523.6018) or Susan (susanpartnow@gmail.com 206.310.1203) to explore how to set up a pre-workshop Orientation.
