Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations. Join author and Dharma teacher Oren Jay Sofer for this exploration of how our spiritual practice can provide a foundation for bringing more compassion, clarity, and connection into our lives, our speech and relationships.
In this non-residential retreat, we will explore the foundations of an integrated approach to skillful communication. Drawing on Buddhist concepts of Right Speech, mindfulness practice, and the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), the days will offer practical tips to bring more clarity and care to your relationships, and to create the conditions for meaningful collaboration. The retreat will include a combination of guided meditation, discussion, and interactive practice. The retreat is appropriate for all levels of experience; NVC will be taught at a basic level.
