Come to the Tuesday Farmers' Market in Berkeley to meet up with other NVC practitioners and lend an ear to people who have something they want to be heard for. We've been doing this for years, by setting out a sign that says something like "We will listen to anyone about anything," but lately we've layered on "topics of the day" like super sized colas and climate change. Bring your own topic to invite others to share about if you'd like, but most importantly, bring your deep listening "giraffe" ears.

    this was very satisfying for me. There were several people who came to the post who needed to be listened to. One of them was very upset about national political issues. Another person was a landlord who was upset about the city's regulations. Especially gratifying was the opportunity to hob nob with old friends and acquaintances. We made plans to set up the post on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.

    This is a great way to practice empathic listening.

    At least tentatively I can make it. May not know for sure until a couple hours or less before - I'll update if it turns out I can't make it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
