Presence and the art of listening
Have you ever wondered how to deepen your relationship with those you love? Or how to be more present when others speak? Well, then active listening may just be the tool for you!
In one of my weekly videos ( view here ) I speek about the importance of being impeccable with your word BUT just as important as speaking with loving-kindness is to listen with compassion. Through active listening we can strengthen our presence, enrich our lives and deepen our relationships.
When practicing active listening as a tool for presence, it’s important to not only listen to the words people speak but to hear with the intention to understand. Listen with this question in mind “What is it they are trying to communicate to me?” in mind instead of making assumptions based on your own perceptions.
