Hyper-listening: praxis

Contemporary world is strained with intensified conflicts between nations, and within various sects and segments of peoples. The future human societies need to learn how to resolve conflict of interests, values and beliefs. Acceptance and tolerance are essential for the humanity to navigate the challenging times ahead, which is marked by scarcity of natural resources and an unprecedented human-made decay in the environments, leading to possible anthropocenic calamities. It is my assumption that the root of all conflicts is essentially embedded in a lack of ability to listen carefully to the other. As philosopher Gemma Corradi Fiumara suggests, a propensity to listen to the others, without making immediate judgments, may potentially lead to bridge the troubled water of difference. My proposal is to employ an inclusive, mindful and contemplative listening practice coined “hyper-listening” as a way to approach conflict resolution.
