A wonderful group in Abbotsford, Telecare Crisis & Caring Line, is hosting a workshop about active listening, and I think it's worth checking out. I've been to one, and know that it offers a Christian perspective on listening, skills training, insights to struggling people who need to be listened to, and excellent self-awareness exercises on being prepared to listen well.
It's a great experience--facilitated by Telecare staff and full of important principles, videos, key issues for discussion, role playing, and meeting like-hearted people.
It's at Northview Community Church, in their Atrium, 8:45-3:00, Nov 3, costs $35.
You can find more info, and how to register at their website: www.telecarebc.com/listen-up-workshop.html

I think a weekend with the whole family would be nice. Sometimes we have all been too busy with work that we forget to say hi to each other once in a while. People are too lazy to travel. The traffic where we live is terrible. I am not sure what exactly we are doing here but it takes forever to get somewhere. Is this God's way of telling us we should learn to be still? We need to learn to stay away from the legions once in a while. Some people just don't know the meaning of privacy. All I wanted is to be alone.

I am a believer by faith, a professor by vocation, a husband by choice, a father by blessing, and a friend by hanging out. Along the way I have learned about close relating through my experiences, biblical models, and social science research. Hopefully my ideas and encouragement show up here in ways meaningful to you.
