Date and Time

Fri, Jan 26, 2018 — Four 8 week series (one series per quarter) January - December 2018 — Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8)


This course series is for anyone wanting live life and relate to others with skill, compassion, and equanimity. Deepen your practice and enjoy consistent support. When registering for the year long program you receive a 15% discount compared to registering for one series at a time.

Is this for you?

You are dedicated to living an authentic life with compassion for yourself and others. You understand living from authenticity and compassion requires an expansive and discerning mind as well as practical skills. You are willing to practice mindfulness and relationship skills in safe environment that includes vulnerability and self-reflection. You are ready for support in managing reactivity, setting boundaries, self-compassion, and creating relationships that are mutual and life-serving.

What's It All About?

Mindful Compassionate Dialogue naturally supports you in creating the relationships you want by integrating the wisdom and skills of three powerful modalities: Hakomi, Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and Mindfulness.

Hakomi offers clarity about reactivity and healing, NVC offers a means for self-responsibility, skillful communication, and agency, and Mindfulness allows you to cultivate the stable attention and the clear focus needed to continuously refine your relationship to experience.
The series will be experientially focused. I will introduce a concept and skill and then you will take time in a structured exercise in a small group or pair to practice and integrate what you are learning. You will learn using examples that you choose from your own life.

There will be an opportunity to create practice pairs or groups outside class time with others signed up for the year long commitment if desired.
