‘I Am All Ears' - The Underdeveloped Art of Listening
August 13, 2020
Hosted by Gord Riddell, RP with Co-Host Alexia Georgousis, ND
All human relationships are built upon our ability to communicate, and good communication relies on 3 things. Our ability to hear, our ability to see and our ability to understand, all are crucial to our ability to communicate with others and almost everyone is terrible at it. We have two major senses, hearing and sight, ears and eyes, and then we have the sorter/ interpreter of incoming messages, our brain. As a prelude to Gord’s mini-workshop via Zoom on August 19th, this episode is about listening, listening with our ears, and listening with our eyes and listening with our hearts. We will discuss what it means to hold space. How to stop the critical voice that judges mercilessly. Discover what stops us from being able to listen. Join us tonight, call in your questions and you could discover a key to having better jobs, more friends and deeper love in your life. It all starts with Listening.
Things Worth Considering
Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time/8 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers.
Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering.
