From Saturday 1 – Wednesday 5 April 2017 Rosamund Oliver will guide a five day workshop in Huize Elisabeth, Denekamp, the Netherlands. The Deep Listening Training Intensive is the complete and full training in the Deep Listening method. The workshop is suitable for those who use listening in their work.

Deep Listening Training is an advanced listening training using a variety of experiential and interactive methods aimed at bringing our inherent skills of embodied awareness, compassionate relationship and supportive presence directly into our listening. Participants from a wide variety of professional backgrounds report developing greater confidence in their listening and a deeper capacity of hearing within themselves after following this training. Bringing together understandings from contemporary psychology with the methodology of Buddhist compassion training and meditation, this approach complements and enhances existing professional skills training.
