Neuroscience has proven human beings need connection to thrive in all relationships – at home, work, in the world. 

Safety, security, and well-being, the underpinnings of healthy adult relationships, are fostered in early life, yet about 45 percent of the adults in the U.S. did not experience the parenting needed to develop neurological patterning to access these essential emotional states.

BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS. We can build new neural pathways and ways of interacting. 

It turns out, the same skills which reflect healthy childhood relationships are present in people who practice mindfulness:

  • What people are saying...
    Management of the body’s reactions
  • Regulation of fear reactivity
  • Emotional resilience
  • Insight (self knowing)
  • Empathy and attunement - within self and with others
  • Perspective shift from “me” to “we”

Course Details

Topics of learning, discussion, and interpersonal exercises will include:

  • Defining mindfulness
  • Getting to the root of harmful relationship patterns such as blame, defensiveness, avoiding conflict, and shutting down
  • Letting go of unhelpful narratives about ourselves and others
  • Awareness of feelings and needs for more skillful communication and emotional resilience 

Mindfulness practices which support the capacity to respond rather than react and to connect with self and others will be introduced throughout this 4-hour workshop, offered in two 2-hour sessions.
