This 8-week online course offers training in Oren Jay Sofer’s integrated approach to communication, and is the third part of a three-course, live online training series. Oren’s approach draws directly from his training in early Buddhism, the work of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication, and Dr. Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing.

Part III, “Authentic Communication”, offers focused training in expressing yourself clearly and directly. It is specifically designed to support you to discern what’s most authentic and to express yourself openly in ways others can hear. This will be the last time Oren teaches this course live; all subsequent versions of this course will be pre-recorded.

With expert guidance from the author, you’ll learn ways to:

  • Ask for what you want in a way that invites collaboration
  • Say no and set limits while still expressing your care for others
  • Understand anger and express your needs skillfully
