Description

MINDFUL COMMUNICATION FOUNDATIONS

  • Learn core tools for effective dialogue

  • Reduce stress and conflict

  • Strengthen resilience and empathy

  • Grow in self-understanding

Communication sits at the center of our lives – personally, socially, and professionally. This six-week course offers in-depth training in the foundations of an integrated approach to communication. (Take this class in S.F.)

Drawing upon the modern disciplines of Nonviolent Communication, trauma healing, and mindfulness meditation, the curriculum offers concrete tools to hold one’s own while still hearing others, and to engage effectively and efficiently in collaboration.

Through a combination of mindfulness practices, guided reflections and interactive exercises, participants will develop a stronger sense of presence, greater access to compassion and more versatile, clearer communication. This six-week series is appropriate for both experienced and newer students. The tools offered will directly enhance the work of psychologists, therapists, school teachers, chaplains, nurses and other helping professionals. CEs are available (see details here).

EACH 3-HOUR CLASS INCLUDES:

  • Didactic lecture on a key aspect of interpersonal communication

  • Instruction in mindfulness practice

  • Personalized coaching in small groups

  • Exercises and role plays with a partner

  • Guided reflections on cognitive, emotional and somatic aspects of communication

WHAT ELSE YOU RECEIVE:

  • Expert training in communication, empathy and resilience

  • Unique lessons and activities, designed to transform habits step-by-step

  • Written lecture notes, worksheets and supplementary materials

  • Weekly communication practice suggestions

  • Weekly meeting or call with a practice partner (optional)

  • Life-time access to recordings and class materials
