Active Listening is the practice of repeating back or paraphrasing what you think you are hearing and gently seeking clarity when the meaning is not clear.
Good Listening is giving open-minded, genuinely interested attention to others and allowing yourself the time and space to fully absorb what they say. Seeks not surface but where the speaker is coming from.
Deep Listening is more contemplative than active listening and involves listening from a deep, receptive and caring place in oneself to a deeper and often subtler level of meaning and intention in another person. It is listening that is generous, empathetic, supportive, accurate and trusting - trust that whatever the other says comes from something true in their experience. Involves opening one's awareness to the unknown and unexpected. Deep Listening is a way of being that is sensitive to all facets of our experience: external, internal, contextual.
