Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful

Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

Mindfulness technique: Five steps to enjoying more empathetic and artful conversation.

 

Conversation in the original Latin had a very broad meaning. It meant something like “living together, having dealings with others,” and it referred to more than just talking. We can learn a lot from connecting to this original bigger sense of the word.

 

When we're having a real conversation we're actively exchanging—giving and receiving—which begins with truly being together.

 

We can’t exchange something with someone when they, or we, are not present. We can talk to them, we can talk at them, but we can’t have a conversation.

Suvi Salo's insight:

"If you're not being heard, don’t blame your audience. Come up with something that engages them more."
