Mindful Communication & Dharma Teaching

Oren J. Sofer

Integrating the tools and insights of Buddhist meditation, Somatics and Nonviolent Communication, Oren brings a unique and pragmatic perspective to living and speaking mindfully. He will be teaching Dharma and communication in the Northeast and San Francisco Bay area throughout 2014. 


Oren will be leading two residential Wise Speech retreats this summer: a seven-day retreat at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in June (with co-teacher Donald Rothberg), and a five-day retreat at the Omega Institute (Rhinebeck, NY) in August. Wise Speech retreats offer one of the only opportunities in the United States today to learn and practice NVC and Right Speech within the context of the Buddha's teachings. 


During 2014-2015, Oren will be relocating from the SF Bay area to the east coast, and is happily accepting invitations to visit, teach and meet practitioners and Dharma communities in the Northeast and New England areas.
