Right Listening — The Chaplain’s Empathic Stethoscope with Pamela Ayo Yetunde

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

The Noble Eightfold Path is a remarkable and inspirational “prescription” for individual healing.  Why individual?  Maybe because it is usually not written about as a relational path practice.  What if we used the “compass” of the Noble Eightfold Path to point us in the direction of enhancing our listening/understanding abilities when in the acts of spiritual care and friendship? Can the chaplain’s embodiment of the Noble Eightfold Path alter the sense-doors of our ears and other modes of perception?  In this conversation, we’ll discuss the possibility of Right Listening (which can be beyond the capacity to hear) as a path factor for healing.

Pamela Ayo Yetunde is a Community Dharma Leader, Zen student, chaplain, pastoral counselor, and pastoral care instructor. She is the principal co-founder and editor-in-chief of Buddhist Justice Reporter. Ayo is the author of Casting Indra’s Net: Fostering Spiritual Kinship and Community, co-editor of Black and Buddhist: What Buddhism Can Teach Us About Race, Resilience, Transformation and Freedom, other books and articles, and is an associate editor with Lion’s Roar. She is working on a novella and film project called “Birdsong.”
