An Introduction to Supportive Listening

Although we currently do not have any public workshops planned, we are still doing private and hosted workshops. If you’d like us to come and work with your group or community, please contact us.

Join us to learn the magic of Supportive Listening . Become an effective source of emotional support for your friends, in a way that’s healthy for you, too. Learn how to listen with full intention, and help others feel heard, gain clarity, and come up with their own solutions.

In this highly interactive 2-hour workshop, we will introduce you to the core skills for great listening, and you will get lots of chances to practice. You will come out with new ideas to try, and a tool that will enable you to offer effective and genuine support for others, in a way that’s sustainable and healthy for you.

“Wonderful! You guys are on a GREAT mission. I’m going to start applying it TODAY. Thanks for your wonderful work.”
– David

“Fantastic! At the beginning it seemed like common knowledge, but the small details of the techniques made the difference.”
– Sandra

The Supportive Listening Phone Class
You can continue to develop your Supportive Listening skills in an hour a week! We’ve designed a 4 week class that gives you the power of focused weekly practice, along the support of a group of fellow listeners. This is a great way to keep growing as a Supportive Listener, and to continue to explore how you connect with those around you.

Our most recent Phone class concluded in July, 2008. We do not currently have any Supportive Listening Phone classes scheduled. If you’d like to be informed of upcoming classes, please join our mailing list–the link is on the right.
