“…Expression is more than just the mouthing of words. It is the exchange of what matters between living things.”
— Mark Nepo
There will be an Introduction to Conscious Communication offered on the first and third Thursdays of the month starting April 18, 2019 at Calming Grounds, 3866 Johns Street in Madison, WI.
This is a great way to experience the practice of Conscious Communication. There is no obligation to continue your practice or attend every session.
If you decide to join us after the introductory series, you may continue to meet with the East Side Conscious Communication Beginners Group on the first and third Thursday of every month, or you may join any of our other practice groups for beginners that meet regularly.
The four sessions are as follows.
April 18, 2019: Empathy Poker. At this session, we will define our terms and practice with a game called “Empathy Poker.” You will get a taste of what it feels like to communicate from this perspective.
May 2, 2019: Thoughts Get in the Way. A fun exercise demonstrates how thoughts can get in the way of effective communication and connection.
May 16, 2019. Take Back Your Power—How to Never Be Insulted Again. We will work with our real-life “trigger statements.” Experience what it is like to use the basic principles of Conscious Communication in a challenging situation with another person.
June 20, 2019. Working with “Enemy” or Fixed Images. We will explore communication without words, an embodied practice that can quickly identify and release difficult or repetitive patterns in a relationship.
