Mindful Listening for GPs

earshellWhat can happen when we really listen to each other?  How do we need to manage our own internal dialogue, mind wanderings and emotional reactions so that we can really listen?  We explored this in some mindful listening exercises at the recent LMC GP Resiliance conference (info here).  A quick mindful exercise and just five mintues of listening but some real insights as to how this mode of intentional, present moment committed attention can help the speaker to come to their own answers and tap into their own innate creativity to know what is right for them.  Looking forward to working more in partnership with Londonwide LMC to develop materials to support GPs learn more about mindfulness and its applications and also practice for their own well-being.
