Find your voice, speak your truth, listen deeply—a guide to having more meaningful and mindful conversations through nonviolent communication


We spend so much of our lives talking to each other, but how much are we simply running on automatic—relying on old habits and hoping for the best? Are we able to truly hear others and speak our mind in a clear and kind way, without needing to get defensive or go on the attack? In this groundbreaking synthesis of mindfulness, somatics, and Nonviolent Communication, Oren Jay Sofer offers simple yet powerful practices to develop healthy, effective, and satisfying ways of communicating. 


The techniques in Say What You Mean will help you to:

• Feel confident during conversation

• Stay focused on what really matters in an interaction

• Listen for the authentic concerns behind what others say

• Reduce anxiety before and during difficult conversations

• Find nourishment in day-to-day interactions


 

“Unconscious patterns of communication create separation not only in our personal lives, they also perpetuate patterns of misunderstanding and violence that pervade our world. With clarity and great insight, Oren Jay Sofer offers teachings and practices that train us to speak and listen with presence, courage, and an open heart.” —Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
