Interpersonal Mindfulness

Being present and communicating mindfully with your cherished ones, right through to the most difficult people you know, can be a real challenge at times. Particularly in the face of disagreement. For the next three days I get to learn from the brilliant Gregory Kramer – founder of the insight dialogue practice – on just this topic. Looking forward to sharing my learnings with you all on the other side.

A Resolution for 2015: I am going to start writing a regular blog.

As I sat down to write my first post this morning, I got caught up in a good old pattern of mine– Perfectionism. I was stressed about not getting the blog just right.
