Mindful Listening to Connect

16 March 2012 2,924 views

Inspired by Dr. Hallowell’s recent appearance on Dr. Oz re: ADHD and marriage, it reminded me of those many couples craving connection who would like nothing more than to be heard wholeheartedly, or mindfully. In my book “The Zen of Listening” I describe mindful listening as forgetting yourself and your assumptions (past and future), listening with curiosity to understand with the possibility of that you just might change your mind. Certainly a Herculean task for many of us, but any effort in this direction takes us closer to real connection.
