One of the joys and challenges of a mindfulness practice is bringing it into our daily lives. Communication is a rich field for mindfulness practice, both internally and externally. How do we effectively communicate, especially in conflict situations, in a way that reflects the values and insights nurtured in the quiet of meditation? How do we stay connected to our intentions when our own reactivity is strong? How do we express the practice in active, socially engaged contexts? Exploring ways to engage with these questions will include practice periods and communication exercises as a way to inspire our own responses to these important questions.
