In a world in which we are so distracted, so inattentive and so overwhelmed with so much noise, we risk not only losing our connection with the sacred but with each other, says Diane Millis, educator, leadership consultant and author.

But imagine what our relationships, our workplaces, our communities-really, every aspect of our lives might look like if we practiced deep, heart-centered listening. It would be transformative, she says.

Millis will lead a weekend retreat, “Deepening Engagement: Essential Habits for Listening,” Feb. 2-3 at the Franciscan Spirituality Center.
