Why we need to listen to what we hear? Hearing is simply the act of perceiving sound by the ear. Hearing is one of the five senses and it just happens all the time – whether you like it or not – unless you have a hearing problem. Listening uses different senses, like the sense of hearing, seeing, or sense of touch. Listening is something you consciously choose to do. Listening requires concentration so that your brain processes meaning from words and sentences. Listening means also observing what you hear, for example, the speaker’s behaviour and body language, in order to better understand what the speaker is talking about. Listening can build a better relationship with others. When people feel that she or he is being listened to, people may fell as if he or she is receiving a hug–a “psychological hug.”

Anastasia offers a fun and interactive workshop on how to improve communication within family members by employing listening skills.
