Listening to the experience of others has formed an important part of human history and the creation of organised societies.  We believe it is still as relevant in today’s world, perhaps now more than ever.

 

In this course we’ll explain why really listening to others and being heard is vital for our wellbeing and how it can help us to connect better with ourselves, our communities, and our loved ones.

 

We’ll outline what happens in the Heart Movement’s ‘Listening Spaces’, what you can expect if you come along to one, and some of the skills you might be practicing whilst taking part.

 

Joining a Listening Space, potentially with people you don’t know, may seem daunting and you might wonder why you would do it.  We also share with you the benefits of listening in this specific form – both in the immediate moment and in a deeper, lifelong way.

 

We hope this short course will give you all of the information you need to inspire you to attend one of our Listening Space events, and to explore how the skills of listening and speaking mindfully can impact in all areas of your daily life.

 

The course includes 7 x short audio teachings (approx. 10 mins), additional, optional resources for you to explore plus we invite you to join us in our monthly Mindful Listening Spaces (check the Events Page on the app for dates). You will also have access to monthly live facilitated mindfulness drop-in sessions where you will share a practice with other participants of courses run by The Heart Movement and have the opportunity to ask questions and gain support from an experienced facilitator.  

All this, as well as access to a dedicated group on The Heart Movement App in which you can chat with other participants, ask questions, and share inspiration and resources.
