The Listening Space: A New Path to Personal Discovery will give you simple tools to help you pause for breath, slow time down and create space to listen to yourself and others. These tools are based on the principles of mindful awareness.


You will:

  • be shown ways of becoming mindful of the present moment by tuning in to your different senses, your thoughts and your emotions;

  • be encouraged to access your own metaphors to describe your experiences and bring your self-exploration to a whole new colourful and creative level; and


  • learn how to create a Listening Space for others to explore their own experience, which may or may not be through metaphor.


The book takes you on a path into and up through the different floors of the Lighthouse of Mindful Exploration, showing you how Clean questions can be used to shine the light of attention on ourselves and others in order to:

  • gain clarity on which direction to take next;

  • navigate the rocks and storms in life; and

  • notice the beauty in the surrounding landscape.

We offer online courses that cover the tools described in the book, should you wish to explore their use further.
