Compassion

As I've mentioned, my "theme" this year is receptivity.  My intention is to listen better, to allow more space in my interactions with others, and to ask more questions.

Rachel Naomi Remen is one of my idols.  I love these words of hers on healing and connection.  

"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.... A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words."
