009 | Listening (Side B)

"This isn't indefinite, but it's essential."

It's important to sit with the weight of a story. To be contemplative and reflect on what we've heard and what we've learned. Living in a world that is so effective at stealing our attention, it makes this practice nearly impossible. We quickly tap "like" and scroll to the next snap, Instagram, fb post, or tweet. The comments become noise of everyone clambering to be heard and have the attention redirected. Here we discuss the nuts and bolts of the listening project and the necessity of making room to give the attention to someones real experience rather than our spin on it.
