How do you (or will you) listen to your students?

This week's question asks:

How do you (or will you) listen to your students?

I invite you to reflect on the practice of mindful, active listening. When working with others, how do you (or will you) listen to their experience, their challenges, and their successes? You might also share a bit about any challenges you have with listening and how you can become a better listener as a teacher.

Active Listening to self and others as well as spirit during practice are all key. I can butt in sometimes and am generally quick to apologise and ask or make space for the other person to continue, or circle back to. When listening, I attempt to paraphrase and if unsure - phrase a question such as, 'So to clarify, if I am hearing you that you are ......, and then have them respond.
