Discover the power of compassionate listening.
Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh beautifully conveys the power of our ability to truly listen to each other from a space of compassion. The next time someone comes to you wanting to vent, full of frustration, upset, hurt, pain, worry, distress and you don’t know what to say… remember this video.
Perhaps what you say is not important. Perhaps saying nothing, and instead being a space of compassionate listening for them to empty themselves of pain, is all that is required.
Share this video with people in your life, and together let’s create relationships where compassionate listening is the normal practise, a reflection of our intention and of our love for each other.
