As part of its “Conversations that Matter” series, Cranaleith Spiritual Center will present a Jan. 26 workshop on the practice of listening.
The seminar will be facilitated by Sharon Browning, director of Just Listening for the Common Good. Browning’s organization stresses that listening is in itself a transformative act of justice.
The morning is designed to provide participants with enhanced communication skills, emphasizing both self-reflective and other-centered listening.
During the afternoon session, Susan McCrary and Candice Harris will share their experiences as women in the United States facing work, family, and cultural pressures amidst the challenges of deeply ingrained sexist and racist attitudes and behaviors.
By the end of the day, participants will be able to identify core personal and social impediments to listening; gain essential listening and speaking skills; practice compassionate, “ego-less” communication; converse with women and men from various backgrounds and circumstances.
The seminar will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m. Cost: $45 per person, which includes lunch. Some scholarship assistance is available.
In case of snow, the seminar will be rescheduled for Feb. 2, 2019.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
