Description:

Hearing and listening play a vital role at every stage of our lives – in the acquisition of native and foreign languages, in the voice, balance and motor skills, in concentration and, last but not least, in communication. Those who fail to hear or – worse – listen well may suffer from a range of complaints. At a young age, these may manifest themselves in difficulties speaking, reading and spelling, leading to perception and processing disorders and even to problems with movement, to isolation and burnout. Listening is involved in many processes in the body – including coping with stress. This is because the ears are directly connected to the vagus nerve, which contributes to regulating the stress level of our entire system, affecting many internal organs in the process. The older we get, the more difficult it is to pick up higher frequencies, depriving our ears of an important source of stimulation.

For professional speakers and listeners, an additional factor is the above-average strain placed on the ears and voice. And if the technical prerequisites for good understanding are inadequate, it poses a real threat to our capacity for lifelong listening.

During the webinar, listening trainer Claudia Krüger will describe these relationships, offer some everyday support options and explain the main features of the Tomatis Method, including how to look after your ears so that they will continue to function well throughout your life.
