  3. 3. Thread 1: Noble Listening practitioners invite others to speak truthfully and they hold the things they hear sacred. (pg. 19)
  4. 4. Thread 2: “Being listened to is so close to being loved that most people don’t know the difference.” (pg. 21)

  8. 8. Thread 6: The plain and simple truth is that few of us are perfectly comfortable with silence. It is generative listening that allows us to develop deeper silences that slow the ear’s hearing to the mind’s natural speed. (pg. 39)
  9. 9. Thread 7: Living inside each of us is a wealth of embodied wisdom and experience that is much more reliable and trustworthy than any advice we might offer. (pg. 41)
