What is “Mindful Conversation”? Why might you care?
Speak Openly, Connect Deeply. Live Joyously
How to communicate better? More effectively and more joyously. Questions that anyone inclined to self-reflection faces at some point. Every time you talk, you broadcast yourself to the world. With Mindful Conversation, you can now learn to speak so others want to listen to you; and listen so others want to connect with you. Learn to build strong, satisfying, lasting relationships. Be more fully yourself and connect more deeply with others.
I have been researching, speaking, teaching, writing and coaching about Mindful Conversation in organizations and families, with groups and individuals for 25 years. Mindful Conversation is the subject of this website, and of my new book, Mindful Conversation: Speak Openly, Connect Deeply, Live Joyously, a book of practical guidance, tools, stories, theory, inspiration, and humor.
