You know that feeling when someone really listens to you? You feel HEARD! Or that moment when you really listen to someone else? You feel KIND! Put the two together and connection flows, whatever differences may lie between you and someone else.
After Brexit and all the divisive talks, we thought, hey Britain, we can do better than this! So we formed “The Listening Movement – connecting across divides” on Facebook and worked on the concept of creating empathic listening circles across the country.
And “The Listening Cafe” was born:
1. It’s an opportunity to say anything you like and experience the wonderful feeling of being heard.
2. It’s about having your view respected by those who do not necessarily agree with you and learning to do the same for them
3. It's a simple process with just 3 elements: small groups of four; each person talks in turn without interruption; a coaster with some simple suggestions for good conversations
The Listening Cafe brings meaningful and nurturing conversations every time, by connecting us through common humanity.
So join us in this special experience on the first-ever World Day of Listening! Bring a friend or come to connect with strangers (friends you haven't yet discovered).”
This event will be facilitated by Chi Phan and Sofia Bustamante from The Listening Movement.
