Listening Hearts 30th Anniversary Edition
Grounded in God
Manual for Discussion Leaders

The new and expanded 30th Anniversary edition of the book that launched our ministry, Listening Hearts: Discerning Call in Community, is available for pre-order here!

The work of our organization is closely tied to the books we have published over the years. The creation of our primary titles, Listening Hearts: Discerning Call in Community, Grounded in God: Listening Hearts Discernment for Group Deliberations, and Keeping in Tune with God: Listening Hearts Discernment for Clergy drove the development of the various workshops we offer in the areas of spiritual discernment and consensus decision-making. Each book provides a survey of the key issues involved in their respective subject areas. All of them were written to help people at different stages of their spiritual journey. Multiple readings over time result in fresh new insights.

The other books in our catalog were created to meet the needs of particular audiences. The Manual for Discussion Leaders is for those who wish to lead a Listening Hearts book discussion group. The Retreat Designs and Meditative Exercises book provides useful tools for creating programs that build on the initial knowledge gained through one of our programs.

These books were all originally available through Church Publishing (and Listening Hearts and Grounded in God still are), but Keeping in Tune with God and the Manual for Discussion Leaders are now available for free digital download. In addition to these downloads, a limited quantity of print editions of each book are available from the Listening Hearts Office at 410-366-1851 or listening@listeninghearts.org. The purchase price for Keeping in Tune with God is $11.50 per copy plus shipping and handling, and for the Manual for Discussion Leaders, $8.00 per copy plus shipping and handling.

The Listening Hearts Songbook contains a variety of songs, chants, and canons that are easily integrated into Listening Hearts-based programs. The Songbook and other materials are available through the Listening Hearts Office. Click here to view and listen to the hymns included in the collection.
