This workshop will explore the important components of contemplative listening and good questioning in providing spiritual care. Learn to ask questions that cultivate both self-awareness and God-awareness. Practice skills to improve your ability to remain in the present moment as a contemplative listener. Attendees will learn:
- the components of contemplative listening;
- how to ask good questions;
- what is offered to listeners through good questions;
- questions to avoid;
- and examples of good questions.
After the main teaching time, attendees will get to watch Vicki model good questioning and contemplative listening skills by giving an abbreviated spiritual direction session. Discussion and Q&A will follow.
The skills learned are helpful for pastors, spiritual directors, chaplains, nurses, friends, and all those providing spiritual care and other forms of caregiving. They are also useful for anyone looking to deepen their ability to listen contemplatively in conversation.
