“We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change.” 

Carl Rogers

Listening with empathy is a powerful catalyst for transformation and healing.

Carl Rogers, a renowned psychotherapist, emphasizes the importance of listening with empathy. He points out a common shortfall in human communication—our tendency to listen superficially without striving to truly understand the other person. Rogers advocates for a level of listening that is deeply empathetic, suggesting that such understanding can be a powerful agent for change. This approach to communication has the potential to heal, to bridge gaps, and to foster positive transformation in relationships and societies. His insight urges us to develop our capacity for empathy, recognizing its transformative power in our interactions and the broader world.
