This guided practice was a part of our gathering in which we examined the spiritual practice of listening. In order to make room to listen, we need to make space in our own lives. We can do that by slowing down to listen to ourselves and allowing God to listen to us. This practice, helps us to make the necessary space for us to listen to those in our lives when opportunities arise.
