The Practice of Listening with Presence Event: Preamble

with Aviv Shahar

July 29, 2021

Here we present the opening preamble to the Practice of Listening with Presence Event.

In this online event, Aviv Shahar takes us through the process and practice of becoming a better listener. Step by step, at our own timing, we can now have a closer look at the inner workings, and inspirations, behind this rich and beneficial practice.

What I enjoyed most about the event was the sense of positivity and calmness that I felt from the very beginning until the end. The way that Aviv Shahar introduced us gradually to the meaning of Listening with Presence played an important role in this. I was impressed by the innerness of his words, and his expertise for the subject, derived from an experiential knowledge formulated in a simple way.

I was glad to be part of this first event. Listening is an important part of what I do as a coach, and I am glad that this field is gaining more awareness in the world.

Firstly to say that the feeling that I came out with from the Zoom call was of profound freshness. I felt acutely the difference between atrophy and development, between passiveness and mindfulness, between being a firsthand human or a secondhand one. That newness was in and around, like touching the importance of a new dew drop.

What did I enjoy and appreciate about the Listening with Presence event? All of it... The way the event was structured, signposted, balanced, integrated and timed. The care for participants, clarity of explanation of new concepts - then putting them into immediate, focused practice.
