‘Active listening is a communication technique that requires the listener to understand, interpret and evaluate what they hear. The ability to listen actively can improve personal relationships through conflicts, strengthening cooperation and fostering understanding. People often are not listening attentively. They may be distracted, thinking about other things, or about what they are going to say next. The latter case is true in conflict or disagreement. Active listening is a structured way of listening and responding to others, focusing on the speaker. Suspending ones own frame of reference, suspending judgment and avoiding other internal mental activities are more important to fully attend to the speaker. This particular ‘Listening Aid’ is with pearls and about the sea as an archetype of the unconscious.’

‘The sea is the favorite symbol for the unconscious, the mother of all that lives.’ – Carl Jung (Special Phenomenology; Part IV; Psyche & Symbol)

‘The sea is like music, it has all the dreams of the soul within itself and sounds them over.’ – Carl Jung
