Mindful Communication: Creating Real Dialogue

  • Unitarian Society of Germantown 6511 Lincoln Drive Philadelphia, PA 19119 (map)

How can we we use our spiritual practice as a resource to address a polarized political climate, divisive speech, and violent acts towards marginalized communities? How do we bring qualities of integrity, truth, and kindness into our relationships and conversations, staying true to our values while creating conditions for real dialogue? 

Join Buddhist meditation teacher and Nonviolent Communication Trainer Oren Jay Sofer for this unique program in Mindful Communication. 

In this daylong workshop, we will explore an integrated approach to bringing mindfulness and care to our communication. The tools shared will be a combination of the core guidelines for Wise Speech offered by the Buddhist tradition, as well as the contemporary discipline of Nonviolent Communication. Together, these practices form a powerful foundation for insight, compassion, and skill so that our conversations can create meaningful change.

This event is co-sponsored by Springboard Meditation Sangha and the Unitarian Society of Germantown, PA.

Space is limited, please register early.
