Good communication is crucial to any healthy relationship, whether it’s a spouse, family, friends or colleagues. And mindfulness — the practice of unconditional perception — can help us make our lives more effective and meaningful in our personal and professional lives to communicate with others. Susan Gillis Chapman, a psychotherapist and longtime Buddhist practitioner, teaches how mindfulness practices change the way we speak and hear, improve relationships, and help us achieve our goals.
Susan will highlight “the Five Keys” of mindful communication — silence, reflection, encouragement, discrimination, and responsiveness — that allow us to listen more deeply to others and develop more clarity and confidence in the response.
Other topics include:
- Identification of 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 attentive communication can help us become more true, compassionate and flexible in our relationships.
The weekend will be taught in English.
Time: Friday: 7-9; Saturday: 9-17; Sunday 9-17.
