About the Course
We spend our lives communicating. Every day, in every area of our lives, we are relating to others, to ourselves, and to the world. Yet how much of the time are we running on automatic? Relying on old habits and hoping for the best?
Based on Oren’s new book, Say What You Mean, this 12-week online course offers training in Oren Jay Sofer’s unique, integrated approach to communication. It is designed to support you to bring the principles and practices of Say What You Mean into your daily life and relationships. With expert guidance from the author, you’ll learn ways to:
Feel confident during conversations
Stay focused on what really matters in any interaction
Reduce anxiety before and during difficult conversations
Listen for the authentic concerns behind another’s words
Strengthen your capacities for resilience and empathy
Drawing upon the disciplines of mindfulness meditation, Nonviolent Communication, and somatic trauma healing, this course offers concrete tools to hold one’s own while still hearing others and to collaborate effectively. Through a combination of mindfulness practices, guided reflections and interactive exercises, participants will develop a stronger sense of presence, greater access to compassion and more versatile, clearer communication.
