Series: Deepening Engagement: Essential Habits for Listening
February 2-3, 2018
Devastating news fills our screens, too many demands fill our days, and differences of beliefs and values fill our relationships. How can we increase our capacity to listen deeply – to discern what matters to us most as a community, a family, a person? This retreat is designed for all those who yearn to deepen their engagement with what is most genuine in themselves, their relationships and their communities. During our time together, participants will learn different approaches for listening deeply to themselves and to one another.
