Santa Monica
Do you at times feel stuck in how you communicate with others -- with family, friends or co-workers? Would you like to communicate more aligned with your deepest values? Are you interested in learning how to effectively use mindfulness and kindness in your communications?

Join us for this 6-week class with InsightLA's Guiding Teachers Council member Maureen Shannon-Chapple.

Most of us communicate all day long. With our family, kids and partners, friends, colleagues, neighbors, etc. We not only use words but also tone of voice, body language, facial expression and even silence to communicate. And let's not even start with written communications. No wonder it's complicated. And how do we talk to ourselves? Have you ever wondered how that relates to how we communicate with others?

In this highly interactive class, we will dive deeply into our habits of communication. What are our patterns? Where do we get stuck? And why?

Mindfulness helps us to slow down the moment and to see more clearly what we do - and often also why we do it - while kindness helps us to stay in touch with our intention. Both help us to change and to explore new ways to communicate.

This class is appropriate for people with some prior meditation experience, such a Basics of Mindfulness, MBSR, or MSC class. Please contact us if you are not sure if this class is appropriate for you.

Weekly classes support our daily mindfulness practice. For the duration of this class we encourage all participants to meditate daily for 30min.

Please contact the teacher if you have any questions.

Please note: There will be no class November 23rd.
