What is conscious listening? Kathy and Sheilani break down Julian Treasure's TED Talk on five ways to be a better listener. They explain the reasons why we are losing our listening, how we filter down what we pay attention to, and five exercises you can do to improve your own conscious listening.
Check out the playlist of music Sheilani put together of our favorite musicians to listen to when we want to decompress or be creative.
