What is it all about?

Meeting a need for connection and being seen and heard in conversation is often most satisfying when there is a sense of depth.  

Depth in conversation typically refers to accessing layers of vulnerability and subtlety as an experience is shared and received. Such conversations often touch on universal and core aspects of human experience from the felt sense of them rather talking about them. This shared felt sense of the universal provides depth and meaning.

Inviting this level of sharing in conversation relies on at least three major elements: attentive silence, the desire to connect and be known, and focus on present experience.
