Sharing & Caring is loosely based on the UK’s The Listening Café
During this listening hour, participants will be paired off randomly into Zoom breakout rooms. For the first five minutes, one participant will be “sharing” (even silence is welcomed) while the other “caring” participant will mute themselves and listen without judgment and without offering solutions or trying to fix anything. At the end of the five-minute mark, the “caring” (listening) party will simply state, “I heard you” and then the roles will reverse for another five minutes. Afterward, we will regroup, assess, and repeat.
Want to remain anonymous? Switch off your camera and rename yourself. You may even share via the chat function.
Everything shared during this hour shall be held in the strictest confidence.
It is our sincere hope that this connection will provide an opportunity for a sounding board and will also enable us to develop our active listening skills. We all need to be heard and we all need to learn to listen to one another.
