A Mindful Conversation About Conversations
Conversation can be rich, delightful, dull, isolating, useless, and amazing. Whatever the flavor, we have numerous conversations every day across every facet of our lives. Yet, how often do we actually take the time to consciously inhabit our conversations? Let’s slow down and become aware of our attention, thoughts, and feelings while we have a conversation about conversations.
Mindful conversation is a transformational practice that involves becoming more present in the flow of conversation with others. It is a practice that brings us into a more fully embodied relationship with ourselves and others and helps us connect to our common humanity.
In this hour-long conversation with BreakBread Co-Founders Martha Williams and John Scilipote, we will briefly talk about what mindful conversation is but spend most of our time in conversation exploring some of the concepts.
