In this 4-week course, you’ll learn to master the essential art of communication. You’ll learn how to say what you mean in a way that the other person can hear. And you’ll learn to listen with greater compassion and understanding. With improved communication, you’ll be better understood in all of your relationships, and you’ll be more able to truly be present for others.
The next course runs:

Week 1: The EXTERNAL INTERFACE OF COMMUNICATION
In the first week, we’ll begin with the external interface of communication, the listening and the speaking. You’ll learn some helpful, practical techniques for more effective communication at this level.
Week 2: THE DEEPER INTERNAL EXPERIENCE OF COMMUNICATION
In this class, we’ll look more deeply behind the external interface of communication to the inner qualities and the inner work you can do to cultivate more effective communication and deeper understanding.
Week 3: Communication from the lens of CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
In this class, we’ll turn to some helpful modes from contemporary psychology to understand communication complexities and dynamics.
Week 4: INTEGRATING ALL OF THE ABOVE WITH COMPASSION & AWARENESS
In this class, we’ll fold all of the above into Buddhist ideas around greater compassion and greater awareness.
How It Works
Just before our start date, you’ll be invited into an exclusive group on Mighty Networks with your fellow classmates. Mighty Networks allows for more intentional community building and sharing, and will not draw you into the meanderings of Facebook.
On Sunday, March 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th, you’ll receive a written, audio and/or video lesson and some homework to do throughout the week.
On Saturday, March 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th, we’ll meet at 10am PST for a live 90 minute conference call to discuss the topics of the week. These calls are recorded so you’ll have access to them any time if you miss one or all of them.
In the conference calls, you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and share your stories, insights, and challenges about the topic of the week.
Our private community on Mighty Networks can be used throughout the course to engage with your classmates. It’s my hope to create a very real community, even in our virtual setting.
EARLYBIRD TUITION IS $175 (EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 3rd, 2019)
