Our teaching comes from our learning. We support clients with learning to access new thinking and practices to deepen understanding and commitment.

This program offers an Embodied Learning to cultivate DEEP LISTENING. The kind of listening that taps into and cultivates dignity and justice.
Create a Reliable Listening Practice that considers these facets:
- What is listening for context? How do we cultivate intention and clear attention?
- How does listening shape our view of bias, “separation”, equity, and inclusion?
- How can we identify and accept impediments that undermine our listening?
- How can we develop a reliable and sustainable practice?
- How do we train others in deep listening?
This program galvanizes you to create a reliable and sustainable practice of listening deeply, a way to cultivate openness and awareness, that will expand self-discovery and positively impact the way you interact with colleagues and clients.
You owe this to yourself. You owe this to the world.
