“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.” Ernest Hemingway



“Hearing is one of the body's five senses.  But listening is an art.” Frank Tyger



Listening – Practicing “Listening Presence”





This week I invite you to listen, really listen to another/others – family, clients, patients, employees,'strangers.' Often we conclude immediately what another is saying without fully listening and ‘hearing' them. We make an immediate assessment. When this happens our lens becomes much more narrow


At times we are so busy figuring out how we will respond (and can't wait to jump in) that we miss out on what the other is saying…have you noticed this within yourself or sensed it from another?…

How does one cultivate “Listening Presence?”  Try listening
with curiosity, openness, presence, and work at not grasping at judgment while listening. If you'd like practice “Listening Presence” in some way daily this week…see what arises…what do you notice…






I invite you to share whatever comes up for you.  Experiences?  Thoughts?


Have fun with this…enjoy…


…to you,
