“Can You Hear Me Now?”: Re-booting Your Human Connections
We all carry with us the profound pain of disconnection. This affects our sense of wellbeing, as well as our work lives, our family lives, our romantic lives, friendships and more. But this is not the whole story. The teachings of Mindful Communication offer us a way forward in our lives that is workable, realistic, kind, effective and intelligent.
After this dynamic, experiential course, you’ll have more ability to meet moments of disconnection, and establish reconnection, be better at preventing disconnection, less reactive to unexpected and challenging situations, and more skilled at tracking what happens in conversations in real time.
This powerful pre-recorded course launches January 26th, 2021
I feel like huge negative patterns have been lifted from my life.
I’m very grateful for these teachings to help me through some hard situations in my life.
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.
I want and need to explore my questions and communication and this has given me valuable tools for the journey…
This class is so practical and I have been using things I’ve learned with my wife.
The material was so rich with things we can take back to our lives and practice…
The sense of trust, kindness, discipline, open-heart, honesty, curiosity, generosity, support and joy that is present, makes doing “the work” incredibly potent, meaningful and beneficial.
Wonderful and powerful!
During guided meditation, I felt my senses were more awake than ever. The whole experience opened and touched me.
While I came for the professional skills, I’m seeing big changes to my personal life as well.
We all carry with us the profound pain of disconnection. This affects our sense of wellbeing, as well as our work lives, our family lives, our romantic lives, friendships and more. Even beyond the dramas that drag us down, we carry with us the fear that such things could happen in any relationship at any time. This can make us hesitant to even be ourselves with others, for fear that our true self will never be understood, held, or loved.
But this is not the whole story. The teachings of Mindful Communication offer us a way forward in our lives that is workable, realistic, kind, effective and intelligent.
After the course
You’ll have more ability to meet moments of disconnection, and establish reconnection when possible. You’ll also be better at preventing disconnection before it happens. You’ll be less reactive to unexpected and challenging situations, and will become more skilled at tracking what happens in conversations in real time. And when things just don’t come together, you’ll learn how and when to care for yourself with confidence that you’re doing the best thing possible.

Class 5: Connecting with Others, Part 3
Yes, fine, but what if there’s really serious damage in a relationship? (Remorse, repair, and rebuilding)
