As legal professionals, we often listen to our clients and colleagues merely to try find what we are looking for and accomplish our agenda. Another way of listening could be called contemplative listening, which broadens our field of awareness and allows us to begin to understand more about our clients and colleagues. There will be a short talk, discussion, and meditation practice. No prior meditation experience is necessary.
