'An appreciative listener is always stimulating' Agatha Chrisie
A Listening Game to play with children too (ideas from my Mindfulness Teacher Training With Adam Dacey, Mind Space.
Take it in turns to listen to each other for 2 minutes. Just listen while the other person talks. The listener sits in total silence for 2 minutes and takes in as much as possible noting not only what the other person is saying but noticing their body language too.
If the speaker isn't able to speak about anything, just sit together in silence for the 2 minutes.
Then swap roles.
After this discuss. What did you both observe? What was it like to just sit and observe?
It might even be nice to journal and draw the experience too.
