Compassionate Listening Practice Group

A message from Rev Kim — I plan to offer a twice a month practice group on Compassionate Listening, if there is enough interest.  Compassionate Listening is a way of listening to another person in which we set aside our own agenda, our need to suggest solutions and our desire to share our own similar story.  Based on the premise that every individual is on their own unique path, and that ultimately, it is their own insights that will show them the way, we help facilitate their process rather than trying to impose our own.  We also learn to identity and control our own emotional reactions so that they don’t get in the way of our ability to listen with openness and compassion.

For more information, visit:

We will meet via Zoom, which is a virtual gathering place that can be joined by computer or phone.  We will start in January, but will determine the dates and times based on the group’s availability.  If you are interested, please e-mail me at:    –Rev. Kim
