Raditia Lasry, the founder of Mindful Being, will lead a three-day Mindful Communication workshop in Hartsdale. The workshop will be offered on consecutive Thursdays: March 19 and 26 and April 2, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Sessions can be taken as a series or individually.
“This workshop focuses on our everyday exposure to verbal and nonverbal communication and our automatic responses,” Lasry says. “We will transform our safe communication tools into alternatives that will support a positive outcome in any situation. Significant practices involve exploring our emotional connection to how we converse, listening to our internal messages, and including the wants and needs of the other side. These learned skills will help us approach everyday conversations with a new set of eyes and ears, helping us shift the way we think, engage and resolve unsettled dialogues with mindfulness.”
Through her practice, Mindful Being, Lasry says she hopes to increase awareness of the need for human connection through disconnection from the cyberworld and recognition of the inner strength and significance of every individual.
“My path of living with no regrets and following my heart led me to complete a yoga teacher training in 2010, followed by a 10-day vipassana silent retreat, which paved my way to an increased connection to my emotions and continuous exploration of mindfulness,” she says.
Cost: $120 for the series or $45 per session. Location: The Ixchel Center, 23 Wilson St, 2nd Fl., Hartsdale, NY. For tickets, visit Eventbrite.com or email [email protected] For more info, call 917.392.0840 or visit Mindful Being.
