The Heart of Listening: 

A Mindful Inquiry Training Intensive for Facilitators

“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” – Mark Van Doren

Mindful inquiry is the process of bringing compassionate present-moment investigation to our inner experience. Mindfulness practice helps us to discover and uncover obstacles and limiting beliefs to living as fully and joyfully as we are here to live. Mindful inquiry offers a simple and profound pathway to assist ourselves and others in becoming more present and compassionate. As facilitators, Mindful inquiry is a vital tool for helping people to go beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.

In this training you will learn and deepen in skills for inquiry. These include: deep listening, clear seeing, the art of the question, transparency, and compassionate action. You may use these skills for working with people one on one, in groups, and for personal investigation. Mindful inquiry is held in the spirit of learning how to be of service rather than trying to be helpful, fix, or change people. It is a gateway to intimacy, clarity, and deeper understanding and peace. 

This retreat includes:

Meditation 

Relational Mindfulness

Intensive training in Mindful Inquiry, involving dyad and triad work 

Personal Guidance Sessions

Deep Time in Nature

 

This training is appropriate for facilitators of mindfulness and meditation, for anyone who has a mindfulness practice and wants to go deeper, as well as people who work closely with other and want to become better listeners and facilitators.
