Right Listening — The Chaplain’s Empathic Stethoscope

Pamela Ayo Yetunde
By: Pamela Ayo Yetunde

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.
