This month, the ‘GLOW’ team brings you an interactive and experiential webinar on “Communication Matters” for women.
GLOW stands for ‘Genuine Loving Outstanding Women’ and is a series of monthly online meditation workshops for women everywhere to learn and practice Heartfulness meditation in the comfort of their homes or workplace. The aim is to help women integrate meditation into their daily lives to achieve a more peaceful and balanced life, and a better environment.
Each webinar will also feature an expert speaker, chosen from women who are outstanding in their fields, and are influencers and change makers.
A lot of times, one wishes that she had said something differently or had simply kept quiet. And often one longs to be truly heard and understood. Many times, one also desperately wants to show someone that she is ‘with them’, that she ‘gets the picture’ – but without being patronizing.
Communication matters! The tapestry of one’s lives is woven with relationships, with interactions – both trivial and crucial. Interactions are often peppered with judgments and blame, even when one doesn’t intend them to be. One strives to be more skillful, to match one’s good intentions with what one actually says and does.
In this webinar the keynote speaker would explore how we can communicate with compassion, respect and honesty, handle conflict with confidence and care, and particularly how we can develop a kind of radical empathy that will support not only others but ourselves, and bring us into that “field” of real connection.
