You matter. Your stories matter. Your experiences matter.“Lend An Ear”hopes to make people aware, of the warmth, magic and power of a person-to-person conversation, encourage slowing down and making time for one. Further still, it seeks to help foster in people the wonderful skill of simply listening to each other and taking that leap of faith to just talk to someone, seek help or share stories.
We envision to follow and practice listening in public spaces to heal our lonely and disconnected world. We plan to set up physical listening booths/hold space in public to create avenues for people to walk up to and share whatever they wish to. We firmly believe that every moment of genuine connection adds to our wellness. In a growing world of disconnectedness, we aim to make you feel that you are not alone. You are heard.
Lend An Ear, is a community-based listening project. The aim of this initiative is to provide a non-judgmental listening space to anyone who wants to express/talk/vent. In our busy cities, we have begun creating spaces that keep in mind our need to be heard to and just be there.
'Lend An Ear'' is a listening station or space held by trained listeners on different events and multiple collaborations.
The seed for the “Lend An Ear” initiative was sown in our founder, Sneha Satheendran, through an impassioned desire to address the growing disconnectedness that people she encountered at her private practice, experienced at large. She noticed how with her non-judgmental, affirmative and welcoming “ear” alone, her clients unraveled their vulnerabilities and joys that they earlier could not find an outlet for. This gave her the impetus to want to reach out to people outside of her therapeutic space and help create awareness about the wonders that listening and communication can do in people’s interpersonal relationships as well as their individual interior
Her “Lend An Ear” initiative has since then joined forces with Oasis, a support group of good
Samaritans based in Pune, Maharashtra, where we collectively work towards this cause.
Lend An Ear began with an idea and its commencement with the help of members of Team Oasis, a collective project working towards multiple causes and upbringing of the society at large.
Team Oasis works on taking measures towards enhancing the Indian Education System, peer support groups with Teachers and forming a nexus among professionals from different fields to bring about a positive wave of change in the community.
Lend An Ear joined hands with Team Oasis and its dedicated team for the inception, execution and collaboration of its First Movement.
