I honestly had no idea what to expect at this workshop. I did know that I was craving real, authentic communication. What I got was so much more than that. It was so incredible to really listen to other people…to see them and hold space for them and have them do the same for me in return. It was truly a joy and I walked away feeling high on life for the rest of the day. Thank you, Shawn! Can’t wait until the next one!
I saw that the meetup was 2 ½ hours after I had RSVP’d and paid online. Without ever having the experience of a listening workshop, I became skeptical at the idea of listening to anyone for that long. At the end, I wished we had more time.
Without going into details of this ceremonially formatted class (as Shawn’s explanation of what will occur was part of the listening and opening experience), it was empowering, enlightening, deep diving and, above all, fun.
I must say, on my drive home, I felt somewhat embarrassed that I had shared so much about myself and listened so intently to other’s (who I didn’t know before the class) spontaneous and authentic revelations about themselves.
It quickly subsided as I told myself, this is exactly what I need to grow.
