Event description

Description

The evening will be an exploration of Mindful Communication. Mindful Communication is about being present and conscious with ourselves and others, creating a quality of connection where everyone’s needs and values are taken into account. The model has been developed to facilitate more open, honest and heartfelt connection.

Drawing on over 20 years of teaching communication skills Jayaraja will, in an engaging, playful and stimulating workshop share the key principles of Mindful Communication. We will explore the nature of empathy, and how to express ourselves honestly yet sensitively. We will look at how to work with habitual patterns that disconnect us from those we love, and discover ways to nourish intimacy and understanding. Participants will be encouraged to draw on their own experience to bring the ideas to life.

Jayaraja has been a practicing Buddhist, and a meditation and mindfulness teacher for over 25 years. He trained extensively with Marshall Rosenberg the founder of Nonviolent Communication and is currently the chair of Buddhafield. He is also trained in Gestalt psychotherapy and has a keen interest in neuroscience and development psychology.

This workshop is offered on the basis of ‘dana’, an economy rooted in generosity and giving. This practice has sustained Dharma teachings since the time of the Buddha. We ask a booking fee of £10 to secure your place and to contribute to the hosting of the event and the costs involved in the space, tea and snacks. At the end of the evening, you will be invited to make a donation. This will contribute to Jayaraja’s teaching and to sustain his capacity to teach on a ‘dana’ basis in the future.

Arrivals: 7.15pm

Workshop starts: 7.30pm
