*This course is for anyone who has already taken a two-day Deep Listening Training who wishes to complete the full 5-day Deep Listening Intensive training.
In this Part 2 of the full Deep Listening Intensive training we will focus on deepening our understanding of the dynamics of the listening relationship, looking at what is hidden or obscured. The four aspects or qualities of compassion are explored in greater detail, particularly how they arise in the listening relationship. Time will also be spent looking at how boundaries are experienced in listening. There will be opportunities to refresh your knowledge the three core skills of Deep Listening, Embodied Awareness; Supportive Presence and Compassionate Connection.
