A Listening Ear at Treargel
While on retreat we can offer you a Listening Ear session.
For those exploring life's journey, grappling questions or simply wanting to deepen their spirituality.
Having been trained in Spiritual Direction, Naomi has over 35 years of being on a journey in various Christian traditions, and including missional, emergent and deconstruction themes. Plus 25 years of inner city Community Development, honing her listening skills.
She can offer 1 hour, at a pre-arranged time and place at Treargel, preferabley at the beginning of your retreat. Another session can also be booked for the end as you prepare to go home.
Donations are welcomed for her time.
Include this in your booking or email to arrange.
The time I spoke with you Naomi, brought guidance and understanding, helping me just to be.
I felt grounded and clearer while alone later on, on walks, having soup (amazingly delicious bread!) and spending time reflecting in the cosy Shepherds Hut.

Naomi has a quiet spirit and gentleness that immediately aids the space created for listening. She is welcoming, listens non-judgementally and offers her own valuable insight or discovery selectively. ... Naomi drew from my outpourings single threads or particular sentences and suggested I explore those a little more. [She] also recalled things I had said the week before and appropriately drew me back to them when they potentially held significance. I felt valued and held in a caring environment and able to share, sometimes in a vulnerable or raw manner and I received Naomi's offerings as significant'.

A lot of things have slotted into place after we spoke ... you have a gift'.

As you may remember, Granny Weatherwax (T. Pratchett) thought anyone who could listen for half an hour was a great conversationalist. Your listening has been very much appreciated. I was told once that we can think in a circle, but it's harder to talk in one - that listening space is truly important. Thank you.
