#SpacesForListening are simple, lightly structured spaces which invite a different quality of
conversation. These are one-off sessions, typically with 8 people on Zoom, in which people share
what we are feeling and thinking. These sessions are not about giving us the ‘answer’, but rather
they give us breathing space: to find out and share what is going on for each of us; and, to hear
where others are too.
In #SpacesForListening we each have an equal opportunity to share our thoughts and feelings,
and to experience an equality of listening; there is no hierarchy. It is about starting where we
are; sharing what is going on for each of us.
