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.
This course is meant to be completed over five weeks. You’ll have an eight-week window to accommodate any life disruptions.
This course is open to all. No previous experience with meditation is required. Class size is limited to ensure a satisfying learning experience.
Over 6 to 8 weeks, course participants view recorded teachings, then gather in the online learning environment to discuss, contemplate and engage in exercises aimed at deepening their understanding.

When Does the Class Meet?

The course is asynchronous. You may view the recorded talks at your convenience. The recommended schedule is to view one talk each week and complete the associated readings and exercises in the module. There are 5 talks; the course is open for 8 weeks (but will continue to stay available in the year to come.

Please note that an important aspect of the course involves meeting with another course participant for dialogue. You can arrange live meetings via telephone, an online meeting forum such as Skype, or in person.

How Much Time Does it Take?

Most participants spend 2 to 3 hours per week on the course. The talks average 50 minutes in length. Allow yourself time to do the readings, meditation practices and other assignments. It’s a good idea to schedule the time on your calendar as you would for a face-to-face class.
