Podcast 31 The Art of Listening
July 20, 2020

Dicken Bettinger is a rare person. Whenever I hear him speak I experience a wonderful sense of ease and inner stillness.

I often joke that Dicken could read the phone directory and people would listen to him and get something from just being in his presence.

So when I got to speak to him on the podcast about the power of listening I jumped at the chance. He was as every bit as gracious, gentle and humble as I had imagined. I could have talked to him all day.

Like me, he is passionate about  the power of listening as a catalyst to touch the deeper intelligence both within ourselves (as the listener) but also by enabling the other person to experience innate wisdom.

Listening is such a beautiful thing. On the face of it listening appears to be something we need to ‘do’. However, when you start to realise that listening is actually our natural state – then it takes the exploration around listening to a different level.

In this podcast we explore how:

  • Listening is not about ‘doing’ – listening is a state of being
  • Dropping out of our head and into our heart is a beautiful gateway to connection
  • Wisdom is waiting to break through the noise of thinking

You can find out more about Dickens’s work on Youtube.
