“We say that we know a thing when we know it not only with our physical senses, with our intellect,
but also when we engage our intuitive ways of knowing, of emotional knowledge and spiritual knowledge.
And that’s really what I mean by listening … ” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer
What is possible when we begin to listen with all our senses? How might listening in this nuanced way change our relationship with our own hearts, while deepening our connection to the world around us? How might such radical listening build bridges across difference and light a path forward for our work in the world? And is it possible that listening in this way might even help to heal what is broken in our lives and in the lives of others?
Join us in a seven-day practice that invites us to explore the many dimensions of listening and the profound ways in which it shapes a grateful orientation to life. Each day you will have the opportunity to practice listening with more than just your ears and to more than simply sound, and, in the process, to deepen awareness of how you relate to yourself, others, and life as a whole. Learning to tune in wholeheartedly, we discover how embodied listening helps us lean into subtlety, complexity, and difficulty – all that we might not actively seek to hear — in service of the connection and healing we long for.
