How To Be a Good Listener & Hear What Others Are Saying

Thursday, August 6

7:00-8:30 pm

Facilitated by Lori Wald,
JD, UCLA Trained Mindfulness Facilitator & Park Member

The art of listening is difficult to master. Not only do we live in a multitasking, information over-loaded, distraction-driven culture, but our brains are wired to evaluate input, predict outcomes and make judgments instantaneously. In order to listen, we need to understand some basic concepts about our nervous system and be aware of our natural inclination to prove ourselves right. Then we can train ourselves to listen, pause and respond, instead of react.

This 90-minute Zoom workshop will enhance your listening skills through discussion, mindful listening exercises and small group exercises where participants will engage with each other in non-threatening ways to explore their listening habits and begin to focus on our own reactions as we listen to what others say. We can get away from habitual response only by recognizing and understanding what those responses are. This takes practice! Join us to become a better listener!

Become An Ashrei Achiever!

Thursday, August 13, 20 & 27

7:00-8:00 pm

Featuring Valerie Levinsohn,
Park Hebrew Teacher

The Ashrei prayer is part of so many services at Park.  Do you have trouble reciting the Ashrei —whether correctly, completely, or at all?   Do you marvel at how our bar/bat mitzvah students “wiz” through it so quickly? Maybe you never learned the prayer as a child or have forgotten the words.  Let Valerie Levinsohn come to the rescue!  Val will review Hebrew letters and vowels before helping the class become comfortable and proficient in reciting the Ashrei.

At the end of the three sessions, the class will all be Ashrei achievers! Basic knowledge of Hebrew is required.
