ConsciousCafe is thrilled to invite you to a unique event with Heather Morris, bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, in conversation with ‘The Listener’ Colin Smith, whose work and world-view are founded on the gift of listening.
In her new book, Stories of Hope, Heather Morris takes us on an inspirational journey through some of the defining experiences of her life, including her profound friendship with Lale Sokolov, the tattooist at Auschwitz-Birkenau and the inspiration for her bestselling novel.
Heather’s great skill as an active listener gave Lale Sokolov space and confidence to tell his story and enhanced her ability to write an exceptional novel that resonated with readers on a global scale. Especially in this uncertain time, Stories of Hope provides inspiration and tools for anyone who is keen to deepen their connections to others by enhancing their listening skills.
Colin Smith’s innate ability is to listen deeply. Known as 'The Listener', Colin encourages those he works with to thrive, both personally and professionally, by enabling them to feel heard and to think more clearly. He offers them the opportunity of his time and attention to be themselves, assisting in the surfacing and flow of their deepest innermost feelings.
Colin also teaches how being present can translate into enhanced listening skills, which greatly impact all areas of their life. Through his varied background and inquisitive mind, Colin is able to share thought-provoking and inspiring observations and alternative thinking to business, people, systems, and change.
Join ConsciousCafe and two powerful listeners, Heather Morris and Colin Smith, on Sunday January 10th for a contemplative conversation on the art of listening.
