“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” -Carl Jung
We experience grace when we communicate with others with our hearts and minds open. However, in the busyness of life, and especially when things aren’t going our way, we may lose our center and not be present, potentially damaging precious relationships as well as the very core of our being through our reactions. We may also miss opportunities to grow as we push away those who annoy us; yet they are our greatest teachers.
Jung believed that the constant interplay between the ego and the Self enriches a person and their relationships in the world. Through the art of mindful communication, participants will discover ways to engage and interact with the ego, learn their unique style of communicating, and integrate the essentials of mindfulness practice as they transform their relationships, moving towards greater authenticity, intimacy and grace with the Self and with others.
