Getting Listened To Session

GETTING LISTENED TO: A Practice to Reclaim Our Thinking and Heal From Oppression

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

10:00 am – 1:00 pm Pacific

Check Your Time Zone Here


Living in an unjust society takes a toll. We’ve had to numb out to continue to function. When we receive warm, attentive listening that honors confidentiality, we feel safe enough to release emotions wrapped around shameful or painful experiences. Being listened to in this way gives us permission to heal. Often after a listening session, we have new insights, get clearer thinking, and feel more relaxed and connected. This transformational experience is called Constructivist Listening and has profound impacts on our capacity to stand up against injustice and create transformational change. When practiced regularly we can heal the root causes and effects of oppression—a necessary and missing aspect of sustainable social justice work.

NOTE: Getting Listened To is a highly recommended pre-requisite for and is included in your Stopping the Cycle of Oppression virtual workshop registration.

  • Explored how our numbing patterns are both the result of and allow an unjust society to continue unchallenged
  • Understood how a regular practice of being listened to supports us to heal from the root causes and internalized effects of oppression 
  • Learned Constructivist Listening guidelines and theory to create an ongoing practice with others 
  • Experienced the power of healing in community using LJIST’s core listening practice. 
  • Deepened your understanding of LJIST’s core theory of social transformation and its application to ending racism. 
  • Attend the session in its entirety: all three hours of the session. 
  • Cameras On: LJIST requires that participants have camera and microphone capabilities to attend LJIST virtual sessions. We will build an intimate space together and having our videos on builds trust and allows participants to be vulnerable with one another and the LJIST team.
  • Private Space: We ask all participants to come prepared to mutually hold the confidentiality of what will be shared in our session together. We ask participants to not be driving or in shared spaces with people not registered for the session except in the case of emergencies. We also ask that you do not share the Zoom link with others.
  • Agree to our LJIST Limited Media and Liability Waiver in the registration form. 

Register by Tuesday, March 28, 2023.

Registration is limited to 90 people.

Refunds will not be given for this workshop, but registration can be transferred to another participant until Monday, March 28, 2023.


Registering for this event will add you to our newsletter list, which is the best way to stay current with the latest LJIST community news and events. If you do not want our newsletter, we recommend letting us know in this form instead of "unsubscribing." You will be removed from the newsletter list, but you will continue to receive program-related communications.
If you "unsubscribe" from our emails, you will no longer receive any communication from LJIST, including event registration confirmations or logistics information for LJIST events, including this and/or other events you sign up for.
