The Power of Peacemaking: Healing the Divide with Mindful Heart Communication
Acharya Susan Chapman and Greg Heffron
March 1–5, 2017
Come learn how Mindful Communication can enhance your ability to interact with your world with effectiveness, kindness, and truth. Based on The Five Keys to Mindful Communication, this popular five-day retreat aims to unlock stuck patterns of interaction, allowing us to rediscover our natural human ability to connect with ourselves and others. By stepping carefully through The Five Keys, this retreat will focus on our innate capacity to understand and relate with others, even in chaotic situations. This leads us to be more flexible in our relationships, more honest and more compassionate. The format includes talks, guided meditations, small group exercises, storytelling, mind-body practices and more.
Acharya Susan Chapman, author of The Five Keys To Mindful Communication, is a retired family therapist, contemplative psychologist and meditation teacher. She completed Gampo Abbey’s three year retreat and served as Druppon, retreat leader, for six years.
Greg Heffron has been teaching Mindful Communication since 2009, and has been a mindfulness meditation teacher since 2005. In 2005, he apprenticed with senior Mudra Space Awareness teacher Craig Smith, and became authorized to teach this unique mind-body meditation technique (included in communication workshops.)
