the power of listening

exploring deep listening
and interdependence during difficult and dystopian times

Workshop Series

All that you touch You Change.
All that you Change Changes you.

                                            Octavia Butler

Who “am” I,
without you?
                        Judith Butler

Maybe urgency is inviting us to slow down,
to listen.
To see who is there
with us,
to consult,

                    Bayo Akomolafe

This workshops go into awareness and self-exploration.
We, in relation and alone, are our investigation tool and object of investigation at the same time.
We generate knowledge and experience about and through contemplation, sensing, listening.
We are supported in this investigation by guided meditations, reflection practises, dialogue, music, pen and paper.
And a great deal of slowing down and silence.

Exploring what is there to listen. 
What is there to feel, to digest, to reflect.
Boredom will arise. Fear.
Storm. Realization. Pain. Calm.
We - will - listen.

Come as you are

  • bring your noisy mind
  • your tired body
  • your broken heart
  • bring your suicidal notes
  • your nightmares of war and genocide
  • your hope for liberation
  • your grief for the dead
  • your grief for the living
  • your flowers of love and hate
  • your indifference
  • your shyness
  • your wordlessness
  • your questions
  • your not knowing
  • your despair
  • your hidden sparkles
  • your fire
  • your tears
  • your anger
  • are welcome.
  • come
  • as you 
  • are.
