Listening from the Heart of Silence: Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy Volume 2 ~ G. Kenneth Bradford (Author), John Prendergast (Editor)


Listening from the Heart of Silence: Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy, Volume 2 is a companion volume to The Sacred Mirror. It expands and deepens the groundbreaking dialogue begun in The Sacred Mirror.

The title Listening from the Heart of Silence refers to a quality of listening that originates prior to the duality of the one who listens and the one who is heard. It is a listening that is global, spacious, and paradoxically (to the mind at least), extremely intimate. It comes from and points to our home ground in silent, lucid openness – what some have called the Heart. When we listen from this heart of silence, we invite healing on the deepest level, welcoming everything just as it is. This is as true in our ordinary relationships as it is in the specialized relationship between therapist and client. Once the heart of silence is fully recognized, our lives begin to move from the inside out with greater honesty, love, spontaneity and power, radiating out like concentric circles on the surface of a pond. Our lives increasingly embody our deepest truth.

All psychological suffering is ultimately rooted in the misunderstanding of who we really are. The vital current of non-dual wisdom implicit in the world’s great spiritual traditions directly addresses the origins of the profound sense of lack and separation that are the basis of human suffering.
