24 May 2015 – Clare Lee and “Sacred Listening”

In her first service at the Newcastle Unitarian Church, Claire Lee from the York Unitarians led an inspiring service on sacred listening. Inspired by Buddhist philosophy, Claire invited us to consider the links between listening and mindfulness, and three ways to listen: as a gift, as a choice, and as an art. Readings were taken from “Deep Listening” and “The Cup in Your Hands” by Thich Nhat Hanh, and Walter De La Mare’s classic poem: “The Listeners.”
