Embodied Communication

Integrated Listening as a Key to Deeper Relationships

A Public Talk with Russell Delman
Zurich, Switzerland, February 5, 2016

In the Embodied Life work, we have an unusual name for an essential practice, it is called “listening-speaking”. When people hear this they imagine that I mean that people should listen to others before they speak. While this is often helpful for deepening relationships, actually, first I mean learning to listen to one’s inner world before speaking.

This is challenging. By inner world, I do not mean just your thoughts, opinions, desires and emotions. I mean listening to the wisdom living in the integration of: 1) bodily sensing, 2) freshly experienced feelings, 3) reflective thinking and 4) the external situation. These four elements are all needed for integrated listening and are the basis for learning to listen effectively to others.

How can we learn to have this deep listening both naturally and more often?
How can we learn to have this even in the speed of many of our interactions?

Join us for this illuminating talk and interactive conversation.
