Darryl Parker / Listening with Curiosity
Sat 4:00pm - 5:15pm
Venue: Relating Arts
Type of Experience: Conversation
Content Type: Listening for deeper human connection
To start the journey let's define our terms- Curiosity: interest leading to inquiry. Inquiry: to ask (someone) a question(s). Listening with curiosity: listening to someone with interest and asking questions. One fundamental human truth is that we all want to be heard. However, as listening humans there are inherent filters that diminish our capacity to listen. During the Conversations with Curiosity session we will go through several interactive listening exercises that help us understand the inherent filters that are present during conversation. We will also explore four basic inherent principles that cloud our listening and impede the outcomes and connections we desire as human beings. These four principles can deepen our awareness of the sacred human connections that evolve by listening with curiosity. Let's be curious together and listen.
