With this final module, our 18-mos. journey is complete! As spiritual guides, we are ever attuned to the highest and most precious purpose of our calling: sacred listening through presence. In the words of Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, “Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear truth in themselves, often for the first time. And in the silence of listening, you can know yourself in everyone. Eventually, you may be able to hear, in everyone and beyond everyone, the unseen singing softly to itself and to you.”
In this module, we will do a final exploration and synthesis of sacred listening in these three areas: listening within yourself, listening with and for others, listening to the heart of the world. The proposed RQs and the RE will help you put your experience of listening as a spiritual guide into form which can then be incorporated into your final project.

We hope you will check in once each week to let us know how you are doing and to connect with your classmates.
Let the conversation begin! We welcome your thoughts and look forward to chatting it up with you!
“Helping, fixing, and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. when you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.”
