Our present-day world is filled with noise, forefront and background, from traffic, construction and airplanes outside, to media, appliance and people noises in our homes, shops and restaurants. To what extent the “sounding brass and clanging cymbals” of our contemporary acoustic environment threaten to separate our children from the sounds of their own voice or their own thoughts and feelings, we can hardly guess.

The deed of active listening has the power to open that realm to them again, to confirm their connection to their intrinsic selves and ultimately to allow them to embrace the world around them from within.
