From the October 2015 Mindfulness Summit (world-wide online), recently released to public domain:
Great discussion of mindfulness and communication, particularly "Insight Dialogue" with Florence Meleo-Meyer:
From Melli, 'Mrs Mindfulness' in Australia:
Have you ever noticed that the moments when your ‘buttons are pushed’ or when you’re most reactive is when you’re in communication with other people? It’s certainly true for me. Would you like to be less reactive and more skillful and loving in the way you speak and listen? This is what this masterclass is all about!
During this masterclass Florence Meleo-Meyer teaches us a skill called ‘Insight Dialogue’, which is a form of mindful communication. It’s a skillset that brings the tranquility and insight from meditation directly into our interactions with others - giving us the capacity to be more skillful, kind, loving and authentic in our communication with family, friends, co-workers.
Florence is the Director of the Train-the-Trainer program of the Oasis Institute for Mindfulness-Based Professional Education and Training, and has taught meditation for over 30 years. She is certified as a Siddha Yoga meditation teacher as well as a senior MBSR (Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction) teacher. Florence holds degrees in education and psychotherapy and is a licensed family therapist.
I’m sure you will find this interview with Florence an incredible support in your ongoing journey into mindful living. Enjoy!
