This four-day course, the Level 2 Advanced Training Deep Listening Training, is a follow-on training for those who have already completed a five-day Deep Listening Training. Participants will gain a larger array of tools, and greater expertise as we look at ways to deepen our personal understanding of Awareness Centred Deep Listening. New material will be explored using specially designed experiential exercises to bring compassion, clarity and open awareness into the heart of listening. We look at the true nature of the listening relationship as we look even more deeply into the dynamics of the listening relationship.
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 Wednesday and finishes with lunch at 1pm on Sunday.
