JOIN THE MOVEMENT
Join us each Friday at the Spire, Dublin at 1.30pm to offer the Gift of Listening to someone who needs to be heard.
It’s our mission to get the message of non-judgemental, compassionate listening to the world.
The idea of free listening is the brainchild of Ben Mathes of urbanconfessional.org
Born on the streets of Los Angeles, California, Urban Confessional began as a community of actors determined to challenge the status quo. Every week, they stood on street corners in LA with signs that read “Free Listening” and opened their hearts to anyone who needed to laugh, cry, scream, or chat. Over the years, the community has grown to include people from all walks of life across 6 continents, 50 countries, and 40 states.
Everyone has a right to be heard and the message behind this movement is compassionate and non-judgemental listening, to give a person your full attention irrespective of their opinion and meet them as an equal all while remembering what they have to say matters.
