Mindful Communication: Creating Real Dialogue Workshop

Oren Jay Sofer

Oren Jay Sofer

1/17/2019 7:30 PM 9:30 PM  at   East Hollywood Meditation Center, (4300 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90029) (Map It)

Join Buddhist meditation teacher and Nonviolent Communication Trainer Oren Jay Sofer for this evening workshop in Mindful Communication. 

How can we we use our spiritual practice as a resource to address a polarized political climate, divisive speech, and violent acts towards marginalized communities? How do we bring qualities of integrity, truth, and kindness into our relationships and conversations, staying true to our values while creating conditions for real dialogue? 
 
In this evening workshop, we will explore an integrated approach to bringing mindfulness and care to our communication. The tools shared will be a combination of the core guidelines for Wise Speech offered by the Buddhist tradition, as well as the contemporary discipline of Nonviolent Communication. Together, these practices form a powerful foundation for insight, compassion, and skill so that our conversations can create meaningful change.
 
Oren Jay Sofer will go into these topics in more depth during a daylong on Mindful Communication on Saturday, January 19th from 10a - 4pm.
