Mindful Communication -basic online course by Susan Gillis-Chapman and Greg Heffron
15 oktober 2019 @ 08:00 - 17:00€140,00
Sustained mindfulness practice often loosens the stuck patterns in our bodies, emotions and mind. But it can feel challenging to connect practice on the meditation cushion with our relationships and communication.
In this course, Susan Gillis Chapman offers a unique approach which combines her depth of practice in the Buddhist tradition—including completing and then leading a traditional “Three Year Retreat”—with her background as a psychologist, including working with sexual violence prevention/rehabilitation in both shelters and prisons. Specifically, Chapman shines a light on the mindfulness practice of human conversation, revealing how communication itself can become a living practice of Relational Meditation.
Chapman and Senior Mindful Communication Teacher Greg Heffron will introduce specific practices of mindfulness along with a number of communication models to change the way we speak and listen. With a small community of students online, you’ll learn five “key” elements of mindful communication—silence, mirroring, encouragement, discernment, and responsiveness—that make it possible for us to listen more deeply to others and to develop greater clarity and confidence to respond in your own, authentic manner.
Other topics include:
- identifying your communication patterns and habits;
- uncovering the hidden fears that sabotage communication;
- staying open in the midst of difficult conversations;
- when to withdraw from painful communication;
- becoming more truthful, compassionate, and flexible.
NOTE: This course is meant to be completed over five weeks. Participants will have an eight-week window to accommodate life disruptions.
