'We connect best when are alive in our hearts with kindness and a playful curiosity'
Jayaraja's practical approach to communication training combines creative playfulness, physical energy and emotional receptivity rooted in Marshall B. Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication method: The core of this practice is learning to communicate clearly and honestly our feelings and needs and empathically hearing the needs and feelings of others.
Jayaraja leads an interactive two-day workshop tailored to your organisation's specific needs to introduce the core skills of mindful communication. Over the course of the workshop you will explore non-violent communication principles experientially through dialogue, reflection, group work, and play.
- Express feelings, needs and requests in a way that others are willing to contribute to realizing your requests
- Learn to empathize with others: listen openly to feelings and needs of others
- Solve conflicts creatively to benefit all parties
- Seeking win-win solutions
- Understand and integrate the paradigm of Mindful Communication:
- Translate the four-step-principle of Mindful Communication in a natural and spontaneous way
