Last year, I came across an awesome free resource for learning mediation and as part of that, empathic listening.
As I blogged about at the time, Gregorio Billikopf‘s audio seminar “Listening First Aid: An Empathic Approach” provided me some very useful knowledge, not only for conflict mediation, but for every day life: Listening is obviously a huge part of how we operate socially, and becoming better at it is something that not many think about, although it is sorely needed for many.
Naturally, I was keen on letting others in on Gregorio’s resources, but the website where the audio seminar is hosted only offers a single zip file download containing the mp3 files, and a slow download at that. In this day and age where everything can be but a click away for attention, I figured it would be worthwhile making this content more accessible.
I sent Gregorio an email to ask if he was interested in this, and he was quite enthusiastic about seeing this happen. With his permission, I spun up a website, uploaded the mp3s to YouTube and SoundCloud and after a little tweaking over the weekend, we’ve launched it here:
I hope this will be useful for someone out there! Let me know if you have any feedback on the site.
