Communicating Effectively with Kindness
Wednesday, October 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until October 21, 2020
This course combines practices of Mindfulness with principles of Non-Violent Communication, developed by the psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. It is summarized in Oren Jay Safer’s book, Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to NonViolent Communication. You won’t learn this from reading a book; however, you must practice with others.
When you use Violent Communication, you speak in ways that hurt or harm others, including judging, bullying, discriminating, blaming, speaking without listening, reacting when angry, and being defensive. When we add mindfulness, we can tune into our bodies to be less reactive and more responsive.
