Class Information for Fall 2019: COMPASSIONATE LISTENING, 9am-Noon, Wednesday, November 20,, Beardsley Recreation Center, Agave Room (F176)


Compassionate listening teaches powerful skills for addressing conflict with family, friends, and members of your local and greater community. It is a gift of our greatest desire: to be seen, to be heard, to be valued. Sometimes it is challenging to speak our truths without disagreement or judgment from others. We may choose to remain silent or steer from controversial issues. This workshop will give you an opportunity to be listened to, experience listening deeply to others and learn skills for responding to conflict and differences of opinion. Instructor Sarah Zale is a trained facilitator with, as well as Theatre of the Oppressed, Playback, and Restorative Justice. A college teacher of English literature and social justice, she developed The Listening Tree Project (LTP), an academic program with compassionate listening and interactive theatre as its foundational tools. LTP promotes a climate of equality, justice, and respect for all people. A poet, Sarah published her first book, The Art of Folding, about her travels with the Compassionate Listening Project to Israel and Palestine. Semi-retired and living in Sun City West, she runs a dog training program entitled “Compassionate Communication with Your Dog.”
