The Art of Deep Listening

Center City, MN

Dan Anderson Renewal Center Weekend Retreat

In Twelve Step meetings, when hearing Fifth Steps or doing Step Twelve work, listening is crucial. Yet for most of us, listening is a means to an end rather than an end in itself. We listen in order to get our turn to talk or to gain useful information. But we also yearn to be heard and to increase our capacity to listen deeply in the midst of the distractions of daily life. Come and explore practices for listening deeply--to ourselves, to one another, and to the sacred.
