Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens (attrib to Jimi Hendrix)
Listening can be a powerful tool for connecting and creating a space for transformation. This month a number of Sangha members will explore what listening means to them, what the Buddha and his followers had to say about it, and what makes it helpful and important for us today.
