The Art of Mindful Communication: Finding Clarity and Poise in Life
Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations.

Drawing on mindfulness practice and the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication, the workshop will offer practical tips to bring more clarity and care to your relationships, and to create the conditions for meaningful collaboration.
