Blossom Your Awesome Podcast Episode #24 - Loving Awareness With Susan Partnow

Update: 2021-12-01


Blossom Your Awesome Podcast Episode #24 - back on the show we have Susan Partnow. 

Susan is a beacon of light and has been leading people to more loving connections for decades. 

She is a facilitator for the Compassionate Listening Project and has been doing this work all over the world.  

We touched on Compassionate Listening in our first exchange together. You can listen here to Blossom Your Awesome Podcast Episode #9 - Compassionate Listening with Susan Partnow.

In this follow up episode we go deeper with the power of compassionate listening and how bringing Loving Awareness to each and every encounter opens the gateway to profundity between you and those around you. 

Susan Partnow is a powerful light in a sometimes very hard and dark world where our interactions are so disjointed, misdirected and misconstrued. Understanding the shear power of listening can be the ultimate reward with all of those around us. 

It is a powerful exchange with a sentient being who is delightfully awake and lives it seems in a perpetual state of wakefulness and deep bliss. 

I'm so honored to have connected with her to not only feel firsthand the power of her wisdom and love, but to be able to share that love here on the Blossom Your Awesome Podcast. 

It is my sincere hope and even deeper knowing that there is some little bit of this dialogue big or small that will leave you touched and moved and inspired in some way.
