First Duty

'The first duty of love is to listen'
Paul Tillich

When was the last time you listened to someone?

Really listened?

It’s a hard thing to do, isn’t it?

Give someone your complete and undivided attention; have your focus completely on them and what they are saying; not thinking about what you are going to say yourself, or how what they are telling you reminds you of your own experiences.

Just listen to them.

This project is a study of listening as practiced by some of the 17,000 listening volunteers at the Samaritans helpline.
