increased self-respect

Opening space for conversations that matter leads naturally toward increased self respect. This may stem from being heard (hearing others’ respect for one’s self) and hearing the good one offers and bubbling to the surface more of the good of one’s self. Whatever the cause, conversation leads to more humor, coming together, ideas, and if Maslow is correct, beauty. Said the other way around: that conversation is best which opens the participants to laughing, contributing, loving, living, opening, idiosyncrasy-ing, truth-telling, beauty, good-making.
