Spacious Listening: The Power Of De-cluttered Heart!

With Fr. Jos Tharakan

Open Dates

Listening changes everything. How can we listen spaciously? What is spacious listening and how can we make our ministry a powerful instrument of change? What are the components of becoming a spacious listener and how being a spacious listener we can change our client’s experience of God and themselves? These are the questions addressed in this online class. This class is a very useful one for those who are going into Spiritual Direction or are spiritual directors.

  • What is spacious listening
  • The power of an overview
  • From limited to unlimited space
  • Music and silence
  • What happens in stillness and silence
