The kitchen is a place for learning and growth and the hope with this project is that one can find comfort in learning about active listening and growing into a better listener.

This project invites you to explore the essential ingredients of effective communication: empathy, patience, attentiveness, and curiosity. Just as a well-stocked kitchen needs a variety of tools and ingredients, a good listener utilizes a range of techniques to fully engage with others.

As you make your way through the space, one is encouraged to embrace the process of listening—to the food, to the feedback, and to the people with whom you share your meals.
