I found myself stopping the video and replaying it numerous times, trying to listen deeply to all the interesting and revealing information.
This alleviates many of my free floating fears and anxieties. It brings me a sense of peace and rightness.
I feel like huge negative patterns have been lifted from my life.
Great experiential skills that could be used right now. Very realistic.
I could see in action how the Five Keys [material] offered so such practical wisdom that almost immediately enhanced my relationship with my children and partner and friends and family.

Good communication is essential to any healthy relationship, whether it’s between spouses, family members, friends, or co-workers. Mindfulness—the practice of nonjudgmental awareness—can help us communicate more effectively and meaningfully with others in our personal and professional lives.
You’ll learn five key elements of mindful communication—silence, mirroring, encouraging, discerning, and responding—that make it possible for us to listen more deeply to others and to develop greater clarity and confidence about how to respond. Other topics include:
- identifying your communication patterns and habits;
- uncovering the hidden fears that often sabotage communication;
- staying open in the midst of difficult conversations so that we can respond wisely and skillfully;
- and learning how mindful communication can help us to become more truthful, compassionate, and flexible in our relationships.
