About Mindful Conversation: Speak Openly, Connect Deeply, Live Joyously
Everyone talks, but relatively few engage in deeply satisfying Mindful Conversation. We yearn for more from our relationships. Intuitively we sense the meaning, joy and success that is possible. Baked into our DNA is the desire to express ourselves openly and connect deeply.
In this polarized world, we are more networked and yet more isolated than ever. Mindful Conversation is the secret sauce that makes networks and relationships work. Mindful Conversation is the most important life skill that you never studied in school, the path to more and better friends and colleagues, improved family relationships, increased trust and intimacy, the open door that seems closed, but is ajar, waiting for you to slide it open.
Too much talk consists of stunted, unsatisfying “serial monologues.” To find satisfaction as individuals and to survive as a diverse, democratic society, we need to rediscover the art of Mindful Conversation. That is the subject of this web site, and of my most recent book, Mindful Conversation: Speak Openly, Connect Deeply, Live Joyously, a book of personal story, theory, inspiration, humor and practical self-help.
