NEW COURSE: Learning about: Listening

 

During these long months of the pandemic when so many have had to endure loneliness, loss and anxiety, all sorts of things have happened to our communities. We are emerging with new needs and weaknesses but also with new strengths. Great struggles and sorrows have been met with great kindness and generosity. Now as our churches are opening up, many are thinking of how best to further support their communities and neighbourhoods. And because our needs are so various, we need to be listening closely to those we encounter.

 

We can all improve our listening skills and on August 7th, Peter Wells and Emily Kenward are going to guide us on the path to improvement. Peter and Emily are both well-versed in the fine art of listening. Until recently Peter was Chaplain at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and now continues  as a private psychotherapist. Emily Kenward is the founder of Time to Talk Befriending and in 2019 was commissioned as an Anna Chaplain providing spiritual care for older people. Both have much practical experience.

 

The course they have prepared will help us answer the questions:

* How do I listen?  Using the experience of participants, we will look at how people listen, and consider what works and what does not.

* Am I really listening? We will explore making sure that the message heard was the message sent.

* What is expected of me? We will think about understanding what we are to do with what we hear, remembering we aren’t trying to solve people’s problems for them.

* What are my limitations?  We will consider our own limitations and when we need to refer to someone else.
