GMIND 6047 Mindful Communication

This course explores the influence of mindfulness on the process of communication. Starting with Buddhist ideas of “right speech” and investigating the ideas of David Bohm, the course focuses on the theory and practice of Insight Dialogue, a form of interpersonal mindfulness, and examines its relationship with the principles of non-violent communication. Students engage in regular communication exercises with one another using, text, voice, and video media, and learn to both listen and speak mindfully
