Conversation Skills Class

 

Saturdays, July 25, August 1, 8 & 15 | 10:30a - 1:00p via Zoom | Facilitated by Audrey Pitchford, LUT

Why do some conversations go off track?  What can we do to make conversations more effective, and, more importantly enhance our relationships?  And how is this connected with Unity and our spiritual practices?  Come explore all these ideas and more!

Course Description:
Conversation Skills is a course that enhances effective communication skills to include the ability to stay in dialogue when emotions are driving us to “shout out” or “shut down.” This course provides knowledge and tools for listening, creating connection and facilitating dialogue in tough, emotional situations. The principles and models taught are aligned with spiritual practices. The class is based on the model of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), which includes: taking responsibility for our own experience; commitment to increasing our awareness of our own feelings and needs as well as those of the people with whom we interact; and having the capacity to be authentic and compassionate in all circumstances.

Classes are designed for the senior body but open to all ages. We will focus on a relaxation, mindfulness, along with very gentle yoga poses; all with attention to the breath. This is a combination mat/chair class. If one is unable to safely get up and down from the floor, the practice can be done replacing the mat with a chair.
