Extended Workshop: Listening with Heart


October 22-23 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Speaker: Dr. Sharon Gubbay Helfer

Listening with Heart:
Tools for self-awareness and skillful communication from the Compassionate Listening Project

After the first “Decolonizing Research”, which took place in October 2015, we are happy to present a new extended workshop, offered by our core member Sharon Gubbay Helfer. This two-day skill-building workshop will introduce the five core practices developed by the Compassionate Listening Project: listening with the heart, speaking from the heart, developing the "fair witness", respecting self and others and cultivating compassion. In addition, it will present techniques for skillful questioning, and stimulate awareness of the judgments and triggers that get in the way of hearing clearly. All material will be presented and practiced, using demonstrations and role-plays in large and small groups. Group size will be 10-15 participants.

The cost of the workshop is $45 per participant, to be paid at the COHDS office, Webster Library Building, 10th Floor: LB-1042, 1400 de Maisonneuve Blvd W. Payment will confirm your registration.
