An Evening of Mindful Communication
“Observing without evaluating is the highest form of human intelligence.”
– J. Krishnamurti
Why nonviolent communication?
How do they intersect?
What relevance do they hold for our lives and for the world today?
Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations. Join Oren for this exploration of how our contemplative practice can provide a foundation for bringing more compassion, clarity, and connection into our speech and relationships.
The evening will include a guided meditation, lecture, and time for questions and answer. No registration is required, while drop-ins are welcome, RSVPs help us plan. This program is FREE; we gladly accept donations.
For those who wish to explore the topic further, this evening program will be followed by a weekend training on Saturday and Sunday.
