Green Zone Institute: training in mindfulness and communication for individuals, couples, families, businesses and organizations
All communication is a conversation. Our unique mindfulness-based training approach brings out our best — allowing us to be clear, compassionate, genuine and effective. Our courses and retreats are based on The Five Keys to Mindful Communication by author and mindfulness teacher Susan Gillis Chapman.
utilize mindfulness meditation and the techniques of Contemplative Arts & Psychology. Mindful Communication goes beyond communication skill building. While learning new skills is important, if we don’t identify and relate to the emotional states we inhabit during challenging communication, following “correct” rules or patterns will still produce harmful results. In contrast, if we learn to recognize and take advantage of our natural open state of mind (‘The Green Light’), communication can be genuine, fresh and lively. This allows for creative and unexpected solutions with connection and precision, honesty and care. Click to see our full list of programs.
