The Art of Listening (3): LISTENING: PUTTING YOUR HEART IN FRONT OF YOUR HEAD

Monday, October 26, 2020

Third in a 3 part series: The Art of Listening: Navigating Difficult Conversations LISTENING: PUTTING YOUR HEART IN FRONT OF YOUR HEAD Dr. Llena Chavis, Associate Professor of Social Work and Field Director at Hope College Monday, October 26, 7-8 pm I once heard someone say that "in order to fully listen, you must put your heart in front of your head." Your heart. In front. Of you head! In order to listen, we have to feel; in order to hear, we have to connect; in order to respond well, we must pause and have empathy. Participants will be given listening strategies starting with what I call "empathy as a knife through divisiveness." In this time of such a polarized world filled with deep racism and hate, I feel a deep longing to heal some of this. I don't know what that looks like fully, but I do feel hopeful that this may be a little more possible if we can truly listen. Listening with your heart is a skill you can develop. Let's start today!
