Congregation B’nai Torah’s multi-faith group and members of the Presbyterian Church in Sudbury have come together to offer a workshop focused on listening. This workshop is the first of a series based on works by Kathy Escobar, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks and others.
This workshop is presented as an adult education program to develop greater proficiency in skills that can affect real change in ourselves so that we can be part of changing the world. These workshops will provide background information on a topic to be practiced, with guidance and questions for discussion followed by small group breakout sessions. Each will address a new topic from a multi-faith perspective.
The goal of the first session is to focus on listening. It is not easy to listen deeply to another, particularly when that person has a view or opinion that differs from our own. We hear without listening. Rather than fully engaging with what we are hearing, we are thinking about how we might respond. Or we might nod, knowing full well that we are not going to act on the words being uttered by the other person. Listening is about understanding and requires intention. Listening must become a way of being and thus requires practice.+ More... - Less...
