Two-Eared Listening

Two-Eared Listening for Deeper Understanding


Elders tell us that we have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen more than we talk.



At the Two-Eared Listening Gathering, we invite participants to listen deeply with the intention of learning and understanding. Deep listening requires the listener to receive new information through an open mind and to suspend judgement with an open heart.

Two-eared listening is an act of conciliation by promoting respectful relationships through building trust and nurturing understanding.

As you participate in this Gathering, please:

· Listen with two-ears

· Be open to receiving new learning

· Suspend judgement

· Listen with intention

· Purposefully engage in (re)conciliation
