The Power of Mindful Communication:
Acharya Susan Chapman will teach a Friday evening and all day Saturday workshop entitled “The Power of Mindful Communication” at the Victoria Shambhala Centre on November 28 & 29.The view of this one-day workshop is that all of our conversations matter and shape who we think we are. Human beings are wired for relationship, and when attunement is lost, we suffer. In this program we explore the hidden power that comes from knowing how to reconnect with each other both on a one-to-one level and as a community in circles of trust known as “green zones”.
Participants will learn how to create personal and social green zones using the “Green, Red and Yellow Traffic Light” method of identifying open, closed and in-between patterns in our conversations and our relationships. The format includes mindfulness meditation, brief talks, and dialogue groups.
