This program has been cancelled.
Relationship disconnects, workplace frustrations, family problems often share one common element: failed communication. Instead of listening to each other, we listen for what we want to hear. Instead of speaking our truth, we use our words as a device to gain benefit or avoid difficulty. When conflict arises, we employ passion, aggression, or avoidance rather than gentleness. What does it take to really communicate? Join writer and teacher Susan Piver to explore the elements of mindful communication, the most common blocks, and how to refine the way we speak and the way we hold silence.
This day-long workshop includes meditation instruction, small group discussion, and the chance to practice mindful communication with each other.
