ONLINE Communication Dojo Drop-In

with Newt Bailey
July 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Changing how you communicate means changing habits, developing new skills, strengthening existing skills, and finding new ways to understand your thoughts and actions, and those of the other people in your life. As you gain greater proficiency and mastery you find that situations that used to trouble you greatly now seem surprisingly easy to navigate, and situations you would previously have avoided completely now fall within your capacity to handle.

Anger, Judgments & Self-Connection, 4-week series

with Newt Bailey
July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

When others speak while angry you might have a hard time hearing them, even though they really want to be heard. The same is true when you speak while angry – it almost certainly means that you’ll experience less connection, more conflict, and the frustration of knowing that the way you’re communicating is really unlikely to lead to the outcomes you want. If I speak while angry I’ll probably end up even more angry about how my anger is affecting my ability to communicate!

In this series we’ll practice ways to make it easier to listen and stay connected, even when there is a lot of anger. We’ll also practice methods of self-connection and self-understanding that help you figure out the true message of your own anger and that of others, and to extract meaning and direction from even the most painful judgments.

This is not an “anger management course.” Rather than trying to manage our anger when it happens, or trying and manage it out of existence, we find that we can allow our anger, without allowing ourselves to direct our anger at others, or inward at ourselves. Giving our anger “room”, and getting the true message it’s trying to give us seems to result in the anger coming back less often. We’ll also look at ways to express anger “safely” when it arises rather than stuffing it inside.
