Need a record of this:
"If we would only listen with the same passion that we feel about wanting to be heard."
From Brene Brown and Harriet Lerner.
Also from Brene:
I've been trying to practice passionate listening for the past couple of weeks and it's been a challenge. When I really listen rather than thinking and formulating my response as people are talking, the entire conversation takes on a new cadence. It's slower and there's more white space between exchanges. It's a little weird at first, but it's also very powerful.
This is an integral part of "The Tao of Improv". It's part of what I am learning.
