The training

"Deep Listening training has made me a better listener, not only to others but also to myself, which has resulted in my having less "empathy fatigue”. In conversation with colleagues, companions and relatives using Deep Listening allows people to really tell their story and feel heard. This means that conversations are more effective and profound.

This course provides a full experience of Awareness Centred Deep Listening Training in two days. Deep Listening is about how we listen to another without wanting to rescue or to advise another. This creates space for the speaker, allowing them to find their own clarity and insight. This process of self-discovery leads towards resolution and healing, which can be transformative. Deep Listening emphasises the listener being open to communication while staying in contact with himself or herself.


The three core skills of this method, embodied awareness, supportive presence and compassionate connection, are explored personally with participants throughout the course in an experiential and interactive way. We also use meditation and reflection to deepen our experiences of embodied compassionate communication. A key focus throughout is integration by using practical ways to bring this into your work and in everyday life
