Parts of this evening will be experiential as a means to get us directly in touch with our heart-based intentions that can help guide us through confusion and distraction and propel us in the direction of freedom in our heart and mind.
I’ll be giving a talk on wise and compassionate communication. Taking our practice into our relationships and everyday interactions is often where the “rubber meets the road”. It’s not easy to stay mindful when we interact with others. It’s even harder when we are in conflict, overcome with emotions, or trigger by circumstance. Can we stay present and committed to speech that is honest, timely, and kind? We’ll explore it all.
