Listening is an essential guide to understanding the heart behind what another person says and empowering the speaker to find healing. Such deep listening involves an encounter between God, self, and the other, an encounter that leads to self-discovery for both listener and speaker as they journey together.
Written in five parts, Listening celebrates the transformative power of hearing the heart and considers how we can grow in this skill. Drawing on many years' experience as a psychotherapist, Robin Daniels explores what it means to hear someone share their secret, offers insightful ways to respond, and unfolds the multilayered meanings of silence. This is a crucial book for anyone involved in counseling, ministering, or caregiving.
Robin Daniels worked in private practice for 30 years as a Jungian analyst. He was supervisor for St. Marylebone Healing Centre and facilitated a reflecting team of hospital chaplains. He ran marriage enrichment and bereavement groups for churches. This book weaves insights from depth psychology and literature with those of his Christian faith.
