This workshop focuses on applying mindful communication principles to the way scientists correspond with others in academia (and beyond). These principles include setting an intention, being fully present, remaining open and non-judgmental, and relating to others with compassion. We will focus specifically on bringing a greater level of awareness to the two major components of communication: listening and speaking.

Using mindfulness techniques to help achieve goals

  • managing challenging situations
  • developing self-awareness and self-confidence
  • clarifying misconceptions and “faulty-thinking” patterns
  • awareness of body-mind connections
  • using language "tools" for framing and focusing
