We Would Do Well To "Listen" To Him!

This Ted talk sheds light on something most of us don't give a second thought: that listening is a deeply embedded ancient practice necessary for survival.

Leon Berg, a trainer in Council facilitation at the Ojai Foundation, explores the subject here in this compelling Ted Talk.

The most common way people have communicated throughout time is in a circle, around a fire, all sharing the floor. This is how information was passed down, and how conflicts were resolved. It is an integral part of the tradition of storytelling.

Listening requires awareness and participation. Hearing is just one of the senses.

What this video really elucidates is that we have lost our connection to this most basic way to communicate, and especially, to make peace.

Listen to Leon Berg and be inspired!
