Welcome to the Listening Hour

Hi, everyone!
This email looks a bit different from the usual one, doesn't it? We know we usually send you the same information every week, and there's a lot to read. This week, we're going to cut it down to the absolute essentials, with one extra thing to focus on. If you have a spare moment, please read the whole thing! And give us your feedback on this new approach to communication.

Still, we'd probably better start with an explanation for anyone who's new to the Listening Hour!

What is the Listening Hour?

A free, weekly 1-hour connection and empathy space currently hosted by people who have experience in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), for anyone interested in NVC. 

This is not a workshop but a peer listening space to encourage listening. 

The Listening Hour is not suitable if you are going through significant emotional upheaval or for processing trauma. If you are, see the "Alternative Pathways for Support" section below.

More detailed information about the Listening Hour, including the format and what happens, here.

Your hosts this week are:  Justyna and Ant

Please arrive a few minutes early and please arrive no later than 12.10pm.
It may not be feasible for us to admit you after that time.

The structure of the Listening Hour and its culture of empathy and respect mean that often, participants get their needs met. Still, we know that conflict is a very natural part of humans coming together, so will inevitably happen from time to time. We don't see it as a failure or something to turn away from, but rather as a necessary form of feedback when something isn't working for someone.

That is why we have prepared a process which will support anyone involved in a conflict that arises out of the Listening Hour. If you have time, why not have a read? You don't need to remember any of its details: rather, we hope that it will be reassuring for people to know that this process exists as one of the resources that supports the Listening Hour in its functioning.
