“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

This three-part workshop series will provide practical information and hands-on activities that will help you recognize the roots of strong emotions, and communicate effectively during times of conflict and difficulty. A three-step framework, based on the works of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, will be introduced as a systematic approach to navigate personal and interpersonal challenges in a range of daily settings, including our workplaces, classrooms, and homes. You will gain an understanding of how to:

  • Identify and manage strong emotions
  • Apply mindfulness processes to navigate conflict
  • Use language and mindfulness tools to support healthy, sustainable communication

This three-part workshop series will be held from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  1. March 26: The Roots of Challenge and Conflict
  2. April 2: Mindful Self-Assessment
  3. April 9: Beginning Anew and Resetting Relationships

  • All sessions will be recorded; each session will be available for one week.
