    First in a 3 part virtual series: The Art of Listening: Navigating Difficult Conversations LISTENING: THE POWER WORKOUT Ann McKnight, LMSW, ACSW Is it possible to become stronger, more compassionate, clear and courageous not in spite of but because of how challenging it really is to listen to others? In a time of polarization, upheaval and change, our full presence might just be the best gift we have to bring to our relationships, our family, our workplace, our community, our nation, and the world. Listening is an art we can play with to get us there. This session will help us reflect on the following: Using the spotlight of our attention. Our Best Selves: The 8 C's. What gets in the way of listening well: Fight, Flee, Freeze, Fawn/default mode The Practice of Listening --the mental, emotional and physical stance.

    October 22, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Virtual series. Register at https://artoflisteninghollandhrc@eventbrite.com

    This is the second in a free, three-part virtual series, The Art of Listening: Navigating Difficult Conversations LISTENING: AN ACT OF HOSPITALITY Kyle J. A. Small, Professor of Church Leadership and Director of Research and Learning for Churches in Mission Listening is an act of hospitality. We do this as readers with books. Even more, we need to do this with one another as living texts carrying wisdom from our daily lives. We will listen to one another through the reading of a text and through being present to one another. We will learn to listen as an act of hospitality to one another and to ourselves for the sake of peace and human flourishing.

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

    October 26, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Virtual event. Register at https://artoflisteninghollandhrc.eventbrite.com

    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!
