I believe that the key to creating society that is nourishing, empowering and healing for everyone lies in how we relate [and listen] to one another. — Martin Buber
Recognizing the significant benefit of listening to build and strengthen our relationships across the world, ILA seeks to create a space for open dialogue across countries and cultures. Participants will find energetic curiosity, respectful attention, and critical thinking, in a mutually shared environment, where people intentionally seek to listen and be listened to giving us greater capacities to connect and relate to one another.
