The ZEN of Listening

Book Reviews

The best thing I learned from our core work together was how to listen mindfully. It has been the game changer in my business and relationships. I recommend The Zen of Listening to my friends and co-workers. Now if I can get my husband to listen better….!   Sarah J. Lynn, MA

Book Reviews

I’m on my second time around reading of The Zen of Listening. I feel it’s my private workshop and I read it ever so slowly and wince every time you describe one of my distancing techniques. I’m giving a copy to my best friend so we can discuss it. I plan to read it over and over again until I can feel your advice pulsating through my veins! I’m 76, by the way, and have been trying to listen mindfully and lovingly for 40 years! With love and prayers. Aggie M.

The Zen of Listening awakens us to the potential for intimacy, compassion, and growth inherent in all of our most important relationships.
 
Douglas Stone Coauthor of the best-selling Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

Audio Reviews

In The Zen of Listening, Rebecca Shafir explores how traditional mindfulness practices can help us to communicate with more clarity, depth, and meaning. Ultimately, we discover that mindful communication is a doorway to our own selves, and that our communication is enhanced when we become closer to our own basic nature. When we bring our full awareness and an open heart to our lives, we cannot help but communicate more genuinely. If this message were heard and practiced more widely, it would not just change our communication; it would change our culture and our way of life in critically important ways. Michael J. Baime, M.D. Director of the Penn Program for Stress Management

By listening we drink in our world. To the extent that this innate ability is compromised, however, we become more or less alone, adrift in a sea of distraction and splintered attention, unable to know ourselves or others in our local or cosmic contexts. Rebecca Shafir has written a book about listening that makes clear what is at stake as our world becomes ever more cluttered. And most importantly, she shows us how to open to a quality of listening that enhances our lives and the lives of those we touch with an open and caring presence. It’s hard to imagine a greater contribution than that. Steven Keeva Author of Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life

Audio Reviews

Written by a master of communication as well as a kind and sensitive human being, this innovative, original book will help all who read it, from business people to families and couples, from teachers who want to improve their work to spiritual leaders who seek to find the meaning in silence. It is a superb book – timely, practical, and profound! Edward Hallowell, MD Author of Driven to Distraction and Connect
