Feb 12, 2017: Love & Listening Circle
You are invited to join Lucy Surya Karnani for her inaugural
Love & Listening Circle
“When the space between us is made safe for the soul by truthful speaking and receptive listening, we are able to speak truth in a particularly powerful form – a form that goes deeper than our own opinions, ideas and beliefs.” Parker J. Palmer A Hidden Wholeness
What is a Love & Listening Circle?
It has been Lucy’s personal experience and observation, over many years, that whenever an individual feels truly “listened to” a shift, or even some form of healing, can occur. Lucy will facilitate and hold space in this unique Circle for its members to participate and contribute in whatever way best supports their journey to meeting and knowing their True Self and connecting with their Inner Wisdom.
In the introductory session, Yoga Philosophy and tools will be shared which will provide a context for the process and approach used in the Circle. Conscious Listening Skills will also be introduced and practiced so that all members of the Love & Listening Circle will be able to be fully present for each other every time we meet.
When we meet, each member will have an opportunity to speak, or not, about a life issue or concern, or bring questions, decisions or discernments into the Love & Listening Circle. Other stimuli may be used such as the sharing of poetry, stories or teachings from various wisdom traditions, art or music.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is curious to engage in a process of exploration that is inclusive and informed by Love. Previous experience of Yoga Practices or knowledge of Yoga Philosophy is not necessary.

About the facilitator:
For over 15 years Lucy has been a dedicated practitioner of Yoga and has been teaching since 2010 when she completed her first level of training in the USA. Since moving back to Australia in 2011, she has continued her studies both here and in America. Most significantly she has been part of a unique “virtual ashram” doing intensive, personal work in a cohort of twelve fellow yoga teachers. This experience taught her an invaluable lesson in the power of community and the healing that can be facilitated when sitting in the safety of a group of compassionate listeners.
Prior to focusing her personal and professional energy on the study and teaching of Yoga, Lucy was a worldwide partner with Rogen International a global consulting and training firm specialising in person-to-person communication skills. She has bought together her expertise and extensive knowledge about human communication, her personal experience with the healing power of Yoga and her passion for sharing what she loves by designing and teaching Conscious Communication Skills for Yoga Teachers in workshops and presentations throughout Australia. Lucy looks forward to bringing the same level of passion and love to the Love & Listening Circle in which you can be a part.
