Listening–real listening–involves setting aside plans, demands, and distractions to show up fully in the present moment. Real listening is rare. It takes practice. Though it seems simple on the surface, I view listening as a craft worthy of a life’s investment.
I notice that the act of listening does something for the speaker, too.
Being known, understood, and embraced for all of who we are can give us the courage to step into unexplored and painful territory. Human beings are wired for connection with others. When we know we aren’t alone, we’re capable of miraculous things. In therapy, I’ve witnessed the undoing of damaging patterns resulting from past trauma, the transformation of relationships from confusing and disconnected to open and intimate, and the discovery of new and life-giving ways of interacting with one’s self and the surrounding environment. This is the powerful potential of deep listening.
I consider it a sacred honor to connect with you wherever you may be on your life’s journey and walk with you into unknown depths. What we encounter could mean healing, acceptance, and purpose restored. Let’s find out together?
