"In my work as a healer, essence maker and teacher the most essential aspect has been this still, deep, respectful listening practice. All the information and therapeutic technique is less successful with out it. When working with the creative process and healing, the ability to listen deeply, to hear the non-verbal and verbal dialog of our own hearts and the hearts of others is an essential skill. As we develop this skill of listening the language of the environment opens up gaining clarity, supporting our actions as healers, artists and facilitators of transformation. " Wendi Forbes
