Decoding Dialogue: Mindful Communication for Daily Life

Decoding Dialogue: Mindful Communication for Daily Life


This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

Effective communication helps us feel better and more connected to those around us—but how do we maintain flow in conversations when we find ourselves clashing or drifting off course? In this workshop, we’ll link the research-backed practice of mindfulness with interpersonal communication techniques, yielding a mindful communication approach that boosts emotional intelligence, bolsters resilience, and increases efficiency, effectiveness, and connection.
Participants in this workshop can expect to:
- Learn mindfulness practices that reduce stress, heighten connection, and facilitate greater access to purpose and meaning
- Explore the differences between debate, discussion, and dialogue—revealing the impact of intention
- Take home practical strategies for effective communication, including a “secret formula” approach to dialogue in difficult conversation.
All are welcome!
