In this podcast I talk about empathetic listening. What it is, how it can work and how it can be used to enrich your vital relationships, as well as your relationship with all of life.
So then, what is empathetic listening? In short, it is the ability to allow another person to feel safe and heard, whilst being able to put your own triggers, agenda and pain to one side.
It is the ability to seek to understand another, create connection, and promote a safe, connected forum in order to be understood.
We have all experienced conversations with people we have just met, who are not great listeners. When we discuss aspects about our life, they interrupt us, ‘one-up’ us with information about themself, and as a result we certainly don’t feel validated or heard. And we certainly don’t feel connected to this person. We feel separated, and don’t wish to continue a relationship with them.
Our vital relationships can and do benefit from empathetic listening. These vital relationships may be with our children, parents, family, friends, co-workers, employer and ultimately our intimate love relationship.
It is within our love relationships that our greatest challenge lies, because this is where we are the most vulnerable. This is the place where our heart, our life and our destiny is totally on the line.
Within this radio show, you will learn the fundaments of empathetic listening and how it contributes to the goal of creating healthier, more authentic and fulfilling love connections.
You will also discover the limits to empathetic listening, and the cases when for internal or external reasons it won’t work.
You will also learn how to apply empathetic listening, and how empathetic listening can be the vital difference between creating a flourishing positive relationship, or not saving a relationship that will ultimately end in seperation, pain and heartbreak.
I would love to hear what you thought of this show, and how you can see empathetic listening improving your relationships.
