One event on June 3, 2021 at 6:30 pm

Location: Zoom Videoconference

The 2-part workshop will take place over Zoom from 6:30 – 8:00 PM on Wednesday June 2 and Thursday June 3.  All participants are asked to commit to both sessions and to keep their videos on for the presentation (90% of communication is non-verbal, after all!)


Now more than ever, it is important to learn how to listen to each other and to feel comfortable expressing ourselves. The Community Mindfulness Project invites all to experience what it’s like to be truly listened to, and to listen deeply to others through an interactive workshop that will change the way you think about dialogue, and leave you feeling empowered to listen openly and speak openly on any topic. This is CMP’s most popular workshop for a reason. Come see why!

This program is part of The Listening Space, a new series established by New Canaan Library in the spring of 2021. The Listening Space offers an inclusive forum and public programs centered on active listening and storytelling between people with differing beliefs and identities, with the goal of building greater understanding and minimizing prejudice and polarization.

Formed in 2014, the Community Mindfulness Project’s mission is to offer a variety of mindfulness and heart-opening practices to help people support their physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being.
