As a lifelong student of New Thought philosophies and serving as a Registered Nurse for 40 years, listening well, attentively, and accurately has been extremely important to me. The last 3-4 years I have studied Esoteric Christianity and have met with my study groups regularly. The reading and the interacting with people of like mind have both come together to allow me to practice generative listening on a regular basis. Being mindful and attentive to others as they speak (and also to be aware of my own internal thought processes) has helped a great deal, and I'd say at this point that most of my listening occurs at this level, but not all of it. There's always room to grow!
