Your words carry weight but aren’t heavy once released. Our freedom of speech is under threat because we give others that power to take it from us. Take back that power & give yourself the chance to be heard again.
To engage in unconditional listening is a rare phenomenon today. What it is, is a shared gift between two people, where both people are attuned to what the other is saying – free from interruptions and judgment. There’s a whisper unheard, which says ‘I hear what you are saying because I value who you are’.

About the Facilitators:
Gratitude Listening Circle Facilitator & Storyteller
When asked ‘what she wanted to be’, Radhika knew there was a bigger question which she wanted to focus on and that was ‘to serve’. On that quest, she chose to work with the youngest age group and tuned herself to early years education and the Montessori system. At the heart of which is the belief that ‘children learn through doing vs repeating’. Through that journey, another facet opened for her, storytelling.
Focusing on the youngest listeners – Kahaani Walli’s module gives Radhika the chance to engage children through areas she's passionate about – stories, music, and movement. Growing within the walls of the classroom, Radhika constantly sought different ways of cultivating a thirst for knowledge in children; and it led her to realize that she wanted to grow beyond it.
An opportunity presented itself and from it emerged a gateway, that would change everything she knew about herself and her life up till that point. That gateway offered multiple paths, and the one she chose led her to the Gratitude Listening Circle.
It was that space which truly invited her into its fold, and planted the desire for more into her subconsciousness.
Among the many learnings from her initial sessions was the area of Facilitation which awoke the suppressed dream of serving. In facilitation lay the answer to enabling people, empowering them to find the answers that already existed but just needed to be realized.
Her focus now is to share Gratitude Listening Circle with as many people as she can. This is her way of serving the larger community around her. In addition to it, she will continue to reach out to schools and young children through her avatar as Kahaani Walli; other areas that are applicable to children & adults alike.
