About The Event

Compassionate Listening is a skill set that calls for ongoing practice, integration, and embodiment. This course is excellent for those wanting to strengthen their connection to their authentic core essence, and learn how to maintain this compassionate connection to self and others in relationships, including in challenging situations.

Our Advanced Training will:

  • Strengthen your Compassionate Listening skills of cultivating compassion, developing the fair witness, respecting self and others, and listening and speaking from the heart
  • Catalyze personal growth
  • Allow exploration of what it means to be a skilled practitioner
  • Offer direction and support in an intimate learning community of compassionate listeners
  • Leave you with powerful tools to engrain Compassionate Listening in your everyday life

Participants come with the intention to deepen their understanding and practice of Compassionate Listening, for embodiment in daily life. Some are inspired to facilitate practice groups, offer presentations and introductions, and/or consider applying to our Facilitator Certification Program. Some integrate Compassionate Listening with their existing work. Everyone is welcome. (You are welcome to inquire about financial assistance. We do have some scholarship funding available and are committed to accessibility of our programs).


Advanced courses are open to everyone who has taken a 1 or 2-day introductory training or participated in a training delegation, or with permission from Leah Green, Executive Director of The Compassionate Listening Project.


~“The Advanced Training hugely exceeded my expectations in the depth of learning, self-revelation, connection to others, and in accepting love, courage, and inspiration to move forward.”

~“The material is magnificent, as is the transparent, loving, and dedicated facilitation and leadership. The field that was created was incredibly powerful and loving.”

~“The exercises moved me, and brought me to insight and change quickly. I am filled with awe at the potential power of this work, and filled with gratitude for it. It’s fabulous!”
