I’d like to do something a bit different in this blog. It’ll start with me posting a fascinating TED Talk by Leon Berg. The title of his presentation is “The Power of Listening: An Ancient Practice for Our Future.”
By the way, before I tell you the true aim of this post, I’d like to mention that I discovered this TED Talk while I was doing research to put together a self-help group for “at risk” students at the college where I manage a writing center and mentor. I wrote about the program that came out of that research here, in this piece.
My purpose is to start a discussion about this presentation. There’s so much in it that needs to be thought about and talked about. So let’s do that. Let’s watch the video and then start a conversation about what Berg has to say…
