Gift Listening is the evolution and expansion of what you may be more familiar with as The Empathy Cafe, a monthly community event I held in Edinburgh during 2015-16 for exploring the practice of empathic listening.

Gift Listening embodies what will be an ‘umbrella’  for various projects, all centered around restorative communication practices, which may also see the return of                     The Empathy Cafe.


Happening Now!

– Champions Tale –

In collaboration with myself and BE United, The Champions Dance Crew are coming to Scotland for a month long tour of music and dance performance sharing of their lives growing up in a South African township this October 2017.

This is a unique performance in that the second half of the show will be held in the format of a restorative dialogue. A facilitated space for conversation on themes that arise through the performance, where audience and performers can connect, and cultivate understanding of one another and our cultures.
