SUSAN CHAPMAN: “The Challenges of Mindful Communication”
Using mindfulness meditation and the techniques of Contemplative Psychology and Arts, our programs go beyond communication skill building. Without identifying and relating to the emotional states we inhabit in the midst of challenging communication, following “correct” rules or patterns can still result in a further shutdown of communication, and even harm. In contrast, if we learn to recognize and take advantage of an open state of mind (‘The Green Light’), dialogue is genuine, fresh and alive, allowing for creative and unexpected solutions that include warmth and precision, honesty and care.
