Daylong retreat with Oren Sofer – “Say What You Mean: Creating Meaningful Conversations”

November 2 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

In this daylong, Oren will share the foundations of an integrated approach to skillful communication. We will explore how to bring more mindfulness and care to our communication — our listening, our speaking, and even our thinking. Participants will learn the three steps to effective conversations, concrete tools to bring more ease to difficult conversations and how to enhance relationships in healthy ways.

Drawing on mindfulness practice, the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and perspectives of nervous system regulation and trauma healing, this day will offer practical tips to bring more clarity and care to your relationships, and to create the conditions for meaningful collaboration.

The day will include a combination of guided meditation, discussion, and interactive practice. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience; NVC will be taught at an introductory level.

Oren Jay Sofer teaches meditation and communication nationally. A member of the Spirit Rock Teacher’s Council, he holds a degree in Comparative Religion from Columbia University, is a Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, Senior Program Developer at Mindful Schools, and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner for trauma healing. Oren is the author of “Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication“. Learn more at Oren’s website: www.OrenJaySofer.com.
