In my work, I have found that the art of listening is powerful. In bodywork, we use a skill called palpation, which is really a form of deep listening using your hands. In psychotherapy, too, the simple act of witnessing, truly hearing someone’s story, without expectation or judgment, can be transformative. Just like any other skill, listening well is something that can be cultivated. It is the yin to the yang of any finely crafted expression.
