July 16 – 20
Lecture: 2pm – 4pm
Small Group Practice: 4pm – 5pm

Hearing involves the physiological ability of the auditory system to receive and understand sounds. Listening is the ability to accurately receive and interpret messages in the communication process. We will explore the art of listening to self, to the Divine, to significant others, and listening in small and large groups during this week. Understanding the importance of listening to who we are as a person as well as listening to others will enhance our self-care and our relationships, both personally and in your ministry. This course is designed to provide information as well as opportunities to experience several kinds of listening paradigms.
