Do you want to improve your listening skills and understand other people more easily?
Or maybe you miss being heard and would love to make contact with people who share similar values as you, such as honesty, empathy, connection and openness?
Listening to other people, focusing on their feelings and their story might be sometimes overwhelming. Our first reaction is to help them to be happy again and to solve all their problems as fast as possible. Unfortunately, it is not what they expect. They want your attention, your presence and empathy. Time for finding solutions will come later…
