Exploring Mindful Communication

Oren’s new book, Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication, synthesizes his nearly two decades of work exploring the intersection between mindfulness, Nonviolent Communication, and trauma healing. In this evening program, Oren will share simple yet powerful tools and perspectives for clear, kind and effective conversations. The evening will include a guided meditation, lecture, and time for questions and answer. An optional book signing will follow the event.

About the Book

Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication is a step-by-step guide for meaningful conversations that bring people together. It is the first book to integrate mindfulness with the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication and somatic healing.

Whether it's managing conflict at work, navigating a political divide with a relative, or strengthening bonds at home—communicating effectively is what makes or breaks our relationships. Rich with simple yet powerful exercises, Say What You Mean offers a clear method and concrete practices for healthier, more effective conversation.
