Empowering Communication: The Foundation for Respectful, Honest, & Powerful Dialogue

Explore this recorded Shambhala Online course at your own pace.

Participants in the training will learn the foundational concepts of Empowering Communication and apply them to Self-Connection (clear self-understanding), Empathy (listening deeply to another),  and Self-Expression. They will be able to express themselves honestly and hear the essence of what another is saying. They will learn how to:
  • Differentiate language that promotes trust from language that creates division.
  • Manage one’s own strong emotions such as anger, guilt, shame, fear, and paralysis in conflict.
  • Respond constructively to strong emotions when they are present in others.
  • Hear negative messages, without hearing criticism and blame, or taking them personally.
  • Experience the increase of trust and care that emerges with heart-to-heart connection.
  • Express themselves vulnerably and honestly.
  • Prepare for and engage in dialogue with honesty and respect.
