Dharma Talk: The Art of Mindful Communication: Practicing with the Grit of Life
with Oren Jay Sofer
9:00 PM at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)
Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations. Join author and Dharma teacher Oren Jay Sofer for this exploration of how our contemplative practice can provide a foundation for bringing more compassion, clarity, and connection into our speech and relationships. Oren will be offering teachings from his new book, Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication.
The evening will include a guided meditation, Dharma talk, and time for questions and answer, and will be followed by a book-signing. For those who wish to explore the topic further, this evening program will be followed by a daylong training on Saturday.
