The Power of Listening:
Hearing Voiceless Voices
by Rev. Dr. T. Kenjitsu Nakagaki

6PM to 8PM

25 West 43rd Street, 18th Floor
between 5th & 6th Avenues, Manhattan

 

 

Rev. Dr. T. Kenjitsu Nakagaki believes that Asian values such as “listening” are as valuable as the western values of “talking.”  “Express yourself” seems to be the way of Western society, but this tends to create a more selfish society with little respect for others, and inattention towards people who don’t express themselves strongly. We need to develop more mutual-understanding and mutual-respect among different cultures, religions and ethnicity, through listening and learning from others. Listening is the way to respect others and learn from others. This nurtures kindness and compassion towards others who are also members of society.
