Compassionate Listening is a heart-based conflict resolution method that helps people connect with others and work through interpersonal conflict in a soul-opening way. In this series, we will learn and engage with the Five Core Practices of Compassionate Listening alongside core teachings from 10 different faith traditions. This will be an interactive workshop, so please come prepared to both listen and share authentically. Each week, we will cover a different aspect of Compassionate Listening in conjunction with a different faith tradition. The schedule will be, as follows: 

  1. Indigenous -> Being with the Self in Presence
  2. Judaism -> Working with Triggers
  3. Buddhism -> From Drama to the Empowerment Triangle
  4. Christianity -> Three-Part Listening
  5. Sikhism -> Deepening Inquiry
  6. Hinduism -> The Truth Box
  7. Neopaganism -> Bridges That Connect
  8. Baha'i Faith -> Widening Circles
  9. Humanism -> The Science of Compassion
  10. Islam -> From Debate to Speaking from the Heart
