Mindful Communication

The training consists of developing relational mindfulness, which is an attention in the present moment, nonjudgementally. Communicating skilfully with others may be the greatest challenge we confront everyday. In reach of connectedness and harmony, we make our best attempts to be heard, to hear while being authentic, but often fail.

This innovative training workshop proposes a diversity of daily life practices to empower us with interpersonal skills of deep listening and clarity of speech through specific mindfulness practices:

  • Learning to pause at key moments
  • Hearing what is not said
  • Understanding body language cues
  • Empowering one’s capacity for clear speaking
  • Public speaking tips

 

Benefits of Mindfulness

Living in the 21st century often forces one to be confronted with stressful situations. Whether at work or in one’s personal life, one may be speaking as if in ‘autopilot’. This Mindful Communication course is a form of personal development. It is a space where participants can learn to get in touch with themselves and improve speaking and listening skills.

One can learn to see the close interaction between the body and the mind during interactions, bringing ease and confidence. For example, by improving body awareness and having a better understanding of how recurrent thoughts function, it is possible to increase one’s resilience to difficult situations.

In many clinical trials, mindfulness has been shown to reduce:

  • Headaches and tensions
  • Migraines and chronic pain
  • Sleep disorders
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Work stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Addictive behaviours
  • Relationship problems
