Hearing the Unspoken
In this workshop we will model and practice listening from within the other person’s body, heart and soul, without leaving myself, connecting with deeper layers of meaning hidden in the message, even when they are not explicitly expressed by the speaker.
This super-power empathy skill is key in facilitating breakthroughs when working for transformation.
“The hearing that is only in the ears is one thing. The hearing of the understanding is another. But the hearing of the spirit is not limited to any one faculty, to the ear, or to the mind. Hence it demands the emptiness of all the faculties. And when the faculties are empty, then the whole being listens. There is then a direct grasp of what is right there before you that can never be heard with the ear or understood with the mind”.
