November 16, 4 PM PST: Barbarah Nicoll – Evocative Listening
Does the quality of our listening affect the quality of the speaking of the person that we are listening to? What happens when we “forget ourselves” in our listening? What happens when we deeply engage with the content that the speaker is offering? We will explore these questions and see what we discover.
