Graduate programs are designed for those who have already completed an 8-week MBSR program and would like to further develop mindfulness in their lives.
This class focuses on how we communicate with others. The text we will use for this class is “Say What You Mean” by Oren Jay Sofer. It is based on non-violent communication and shows us how to deepen the connections in our relationships by combining heart, strength, compassion with assertiveness. The author brings attention to how we behave in our relationships, how we express, perceive, and meet the needs of ourselves and others, how we engage with difference and conflict, and how we negotiate strong emotions in life.
