Narrative medicine develops the art of radical listening through close reading, discussion, and reflective writing on a work of art: narrative texts, poems, paintings, photographs, song, and music. Through this practice we are open to our personal interpretations of the art we explore, sharing our impressions, and allowing others to express themselves fully and completely, without interruption and without preconceived notions on our part; fully absorbing and resonating to what others are saying. By developing narrative competence we develop our capacity for mindful attention, empathy, and respect for others.
