Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations.

Drawing on Buddhist concepts of Right Speech, mindfulness practice, and the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication, this program will offer practical training to bring more clarity and care to your relationships, and to create the conditions for meaningful collaboration.
The weekend will include a combination of guided meditation, discussion, and interactive practice. This program is appropriate for all levels of experience.
