The Class

Listening for Heaven's Sake

Listening is a class devoted to building deeper understanding and respect in every relationship. Many of us are stuck in frustration, misunderstanding or conflict when it comes to communicating what we think, feel or want. Listening is for people who want to learn to be genuinely caring and compassionate with everyone you meet without becoming anxious or overly involved. There are no prerequisites for this class.

In this 6-week class, we will rely on biblical insight, practical exercises, humorous skits, and hands-on coaching to being to recognize and break eight bad habits that contribute to unhealthy communications. Listening teaches what means to show warmth, empathy and respect.
