The Art of Mindful Communication: Right Speech in a Post-Truth World
 
with Oren Jay Sofer
 
Friday, January 11th, 2019 | 7:00PM – 9:00PM
 

 
Mindfulness practice provides a powerful support for clear, kind, and effective conversations. Join author and meditation teacher Oren Jay Sofer for this exploration of how our contemplative practice provides a foundation for bringing more compassion, clarity, and connection into our speech and relationships. In these polarized times, how can we speak and listen in a way that is aligned with our values? How can we hear others with divergent views?

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, lecture, time for questions and answer, as well as a book-signing.
