-mary anne radmacher

I learned something valuable in a training I took some twelve years ago.  When it comes to listening, it is about being present.  It’s not about thinking about your reply, or what you have to do next.  It’s not about fixing, advising or correcting, it is about being fully present to those in front of you.

How often do we do that for ourselves?  Listen hard to what is going on individually for us?

Perhaps after you have listened hard you can walk to the edge intentionally.
