Communication is often our greatest source of stress. It’s where we fall into confusion, fear and even real suffering. Based on author and Buddhist teacher Susan Chapman’s The Five Keys to Mindful Communication, this 1-day workshop presents a method to navigate through communication with a sense of purpose and grace. Using Chapman’s simple and unique material, guided mindfulness practice and experiential exercises, we discover how to reconnect with ourselves and find true confidence.
