This experiential and interactive course is designed for those who would like to learn this powerful Deep Listening method and further develop their listening skills.
Described as enjoyable and transformative by our participants, our method harnesses the power of being present while listening so we truly hear what is being communicated.
This course is suitable for anyone who uses listening in his or her work. It uses the method Awareness Centred Deep Listening Training (ACDLT®), which combines understandings drawn from psychology and neuroscience with the methodology of contemplative practices in compassion and meditation.
Participants, from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, learn how to integrate this method into their work and life and report developing greater confidence in their listening after following our Deep Listening Training.
This course takes advantage of the special venue of Dunderry Park and its close proximity to make a pre-booked visit to Newgrange. Newgrange is an ancient site built during the Neolithic period, around 3200 BC. Triple spirals are carved on the entrance stone. The entrance is aligned with the rising sun on the winter solstice, when a shaft sunlight shines through a 'roofbox' and floods the inner chamber.
Registration and supper commence at 5pm on Thursday and the course finishes with lunch at 1pm on Sunday.
