From Thursday 9 – Sunday 12 May 2019 Rosamund Oliver will guide a four day workshop in Huize Elisabeth, Denekamp, the Netherlands. The Advanced Training Deep Listening Training (ATDL) is the follow-on training for those who have already done a Deep Listening Training Intensive (DLTI) in the Netherlands or elsewhere. New training material will be covered, supported by extensive experiential exercises, to look even more deeply at what is happening in the listening relationship. The workshop is suitable for those who have followed a DLTI and who use listening in their work.

Advanced Deep Listening Training (ADLT):
This four day follow on course in Deep Listening is suitable for anyone who has completed the Deep Listening Training Intensive (DLTI) – e.g. the one from 18-22 July 2018 in Denekamp (see The ATDL provides a larger array of tools, greater expertise and continuing professional development and we look at ways to deepen our personal understanding of Deep Listening and refresh the method. New material will be explored using specially designed experiential exercises to bring compassion, clarity and wisdom into the heart of listening. We look at the dynamics taking place in the listening relationship and we also consider how to best create a truly supportive listening environment. Having completed a DLTI is a prerequisite to follow this course of Advanced Deep Listening Training.
