LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #24 – Listening

Listening means paying attention to what is heard. In making music it’s obviously essential to listen to the sounds produced, by oneself or others. The use of this term has extended amongst performers of other disciplines to refer not only to sound, but also timing, space, dynamics, mood… Gestalt therapy broadens this meaning even further, applying it not only to what’s happening in the environment but also to what’s happening within. Communication can not take place without listening: listening to what the other is manifesting, listening to myself as I receive this, listening inside me to what is wanting to manifest and how, listening to how what I manifest is received. Listening in the broad sense of the word, with all senses.
