More than ever before we need to rediscover -- or discover for the first time -- the skills and practice of listening. Kay Lindahl, founder of The Listening Center in California, guides readers through forty practices of deep listening -- to our Source, to ourselves, and to each other.
Readers will learn to:
-- Speak clearly from the heart.
-- Communicate with courage and compassion.
-- Heighten their awareness and sensitivity to opportunities for deep listening.
-- Enhance their ability to listen to people with different belief systems.
Through Lindahl's inspiring text and Schnapper's contemplative artwork, readers will learn the three basic qualities of listening -- silence, reflection, and presence -- demonstrating that the key to healthy relationships, learning something new, and spiritual transformation is as fundamental as listening.
