San Francisco, CA
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 1-day non-residential workshop provides a basic introduction; participants can attend the second day of the 2-day basic intensive. And even this one day can serve as the pre-requisite for the Advanced Training.
Sr. Trainer with The Compassionate Listening Project, your facilitator, Susan Partnow is co-founder of Conversation Cafes, Let’s Talk America and Global Citizen Journey. She has brought this project around the world, from Cuba to Liberia, Ghana to Nazareth. She is a former teacher and speech pathologist, author of Everyday Speaking for All Occasions, co-author of our recently published workbook, and a certified mediator and organizational development consultant/trainer with over 20 years experience, and an M.A. from Northwestern University.
