Health Benefits of Listening - Ornish Lifestyle Medicine

Health Benefits of Listening - Ornish Lifestyle Medicine | Integrative Medicine | Scoop.it

I knew an innovative middle school teacher who wrote the word JUDGMENT in bold letters on a large poster board and hung it from the ceiling in her classroom. The first day of school, her students were intrigued. They had a lively discussion about their teacher’s message and her intention for how she would like them to treat each other. Her message, they concluded: “In this classroom, we suspend judgment of one another.” She then proceeded to write on the blackboard the one word of instruction on how to achieve her lesson: LISTEN.


The ability to listen empathically is a trait we can acquire!
