Everyone needs a good "listening to"...including volunteers!
Once you receive training in deep listening and begin volunteering at a listening post in the community you will need ongoing support. You need fellow listeners to ground you as you explore how the act of listening is moving, affecting and touching your spirit. That is why we ask everyone of our volunteers to attend our Volunteer Support Meetings.
Its easy to fall back into the old conversational patterns with which we are familiar. Monthly Volunteer support meetings give everyone who attends a chance to learn new skills and practice reflective listening with a non-judgmental, accepting presence in groups of two or three. This is also where we are reminded of how vulnerable it feels to share our story and how good it is to be simply heard at a deep level.
Our monthly Volunteer Support Meetings currently take place online alternating with in person. Once you become a volunteer you will receive information about timing and location or Zoom Links for these meetings.
