What is the difference between communication when it's open and when it's closed? When our defensive barriers go up, we disconnect not only from other people, but also from our own humanity. In this program, we'll explore an innovative approach to communication and conflict resolution training that comes from the tradition of contemplative psychology and mindfulness practice, using simple methods that have profound results.
