We are you. We are regular folks. We do what is natural, though in our busy society, not common. We listen. We listen without judging, advising, counseling, suggesting, or cheerleading.
We all need to share who we are, what life has brought us – joys as well as sorrow. We all need to be able to share that joy or sorrow without being judged.
Listening is a simple though profound offering from one human being to another.
Listening Post volunteers understand the value of accepting people just as they are. Guests arrive at the Listening Post either with personal stories to share or for quiet time so they may meditate, pray, or simply sit in solitude in a safe and quiet space.
Volunteers at the Listening Post receive ongoing training in the sacred art of listening. As natural as listening is, it benefits from paying close attention and regular practice. Our training and volunteer meetings offer that to each volunteer – attention, practice, awareness, time to recognize the holy in the smallest details and intersections. Volunteers at the Listening Post are willing and able to hear you.
When you visit the Listening Post, you will be greeted by volunteer listeners who understand the value of your story and the capacity to keep it confidential. You and your story are safe with us.
