I am an auditory learner. And so it makes great sense that I took to full-out listen at a really young age. I remember the total pleasure of listening from my bedroom to the conversations going on in the living room between my parents and their friends. While the words were interesting, what I believe I enjoyed every bit as much was picking up on the inflections, the change to whisper, the emotion warp in the vocal vibrations.
My vision is a world in which everyone is heard. My experience of being heard is that I relax, I open to new options, I connect. Problems are solved easily when I really listen (often these are problems I created by missing the real meaning in a comment, or an email).
So I hope you will join me as I report here on what I am learning about listening. And I plan to continue to continue posting quotes and thoughts on the Facebook page
