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.

This allows for creative and unexpected solutions with connection and precision, honesty and care. Click to see our full list of programs.
