A Mindful Community

The Art of Mindful Communication: Living Your Values 
is the Evening Talk on Friday, June 14, 2019 ✦ 7-9pm at Brownell Talbot School (James Library)
 
Oren Jay Sofer will help us explore how our contemplative practice can provide a foundation for bringing more compassion, clarity, and connection into our speech and relationships. Oren will be offering teachings from his new book, Say What You Mean:  A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication. The evening will include a guided meditation, lecture, and time for questions and answer. For those who wish to explore the topic further, this evening program will be followed by a daylong training on Saturday.

Say What You Mean: Creating Meaningful Conversations 
is the Daylong Retreat on Saturday, June 15, 2019 ✦ 9-5pm at Brownell Talbot School 

In this daylong session, Oren will share the foundations of an integrated approach to skillful communication. We will explore how to bring more mindfulness and care to our communication — our listening, speaking, and thinking. The day will include a combination of guided meditation, discussion, and interactive practice. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience; NVC will be taught at an introductory level.
