Liza's Compassionate Listening Retreat

Liza, owner extraordinaire of All Shades of Green, is at Israel's Arava Institute for Environmental Studies where she's studying sustainability and peace issues.

Last week, she went on a compassionate listening retreat where she and her classmates stayed in the Arava desert exercising deep, nonjudgemental listening with the help of facilitators.  This was an especially meaningful experience as the students are a mix of Palestinians, Israelis, and Americans. 

They also held a drum circle with Darbukas, Middle Eastern hand drums.
