” Feeling truly heard by another person is deeply satisfying, necessary, and sometimes feels like a treat more than a regular occurrence.” Nina K. Sidell, “Parenting for Life”

Do you feel heard when you talk and share with others? Are you a good listener? How often do you feel truly listened to with your friends, family and colleagues? What acknowledgements are demonstrated to you when you feel that you are being heard? After all, communication is designed for both people in a discourse to feel seen, heard, and understood as a basic psychological human need. When we forget that everyone has something to say, we are more present and truly hearing both sides. Listening well and feeling heard assist in resolving conflict and bring people together. Even if those ‘agree to disagree’, or have no consensus, there is always room for a healthy discussion.

Here are some Active Listening Tips to practice and ask of others:

The Listener:

  1. Relax enough to be available to hear someone else and respect their point of view.
  2. Be present when listening by putting own agenda and reactions aside.
  3. Take turns to confirm what was said.
  4. Ask if what you heard is what the speaker said (versus interpretation).
  5. The listener responds to what the speaker says instead of sharing, comparing, or reacting.
  6. The listener talks after the speaker does in a shared dialogue.
  7. Respond rather than react.
  8. Thank the speaker for sharing.

The Speaker:

  1.  Set aside a good time to talk for both parties where there are no distractions.
  2. Be clear and direct and stay on topic.
  3. Make “I” Statements when expressing feelings or opinions to make the sent message easier to digest.
  4. The purpose of sharing is for the speaker is to be heard clearly.
  5. Blame, shame, name-calling, yelling and insults are not permitted when sharing.
  6. Learn how to self-correct in the moment if need be.
  7. Know that the goal is to be heard and not necessarily to be agreed with.
  8. Thank the listener for listening.

Greetings Love Workers!

I hope you are enjoying the warmer, gentler weather and living with love.

We are continuing our successful monthly Live Inspired! ® Workshops!
Starting on Monday, June 4th, we begin “A Loving & Growing Summer”.

This is a consecutive 3-week series: 7/2/18, 7/9/18, and 7/16/18.

How is your well-being? Are you preparing yourself for a loving and growing summer? What is the experience you want to enjoy this summer? You deserve to stop, look, and listen to yourself, nature, healthy outlets, enjoy quiet, creative expression, and whatever feeds you.

In this day and age of overwhelm, fear, insecurity, and the next thing to deal with, we must take a breath and look inside ourselves. We will be exploring the richness of who you are and what you bring to the table.

You will accept and honor your strengths, your tips to share with others, and your willingness to explore, grow, and take accountability and ownership of your personal “Self-Care Superpowers”! You will gently open the inner dialogue experience around what you tell yourself and what gets in your way. New tools will be gained as you learn how to listen to yourself, your body, and take care of who and what matters to you with strength, clarity, and authenticity. You deserve to find your strengths and grow your inner relationship toolbox. This Summer Tune-Up is just what the holistic doctor ordered!

We will explore and discover fun and introspective processes using meditation, writing, group and solo exercises, sharing, and homework.

This is a consecutive 3-week series: 7/2/18, 7/9/18, and 6/16/18. Here is the link to Pay Pal before the first workshop meeting: https://liveinspiredwithnina.com/hiresign-up/ We are offering a discount of $26.66 instead of $46.66 per session.
