Extended Registration Opportunity!

The response for this retreat was enthusiastic. After making a couple of announcements during drop-in sessions, all overnight accommodations at the Monastery filled up immediately.

Good news! We were able to reserve 10 rooms at the nearby Fairfield Inn for a discounted rate.

We spend so much time talking to, or talking at, one another - but are we truly hearing with understanding and compassion?

Words matter. They can bring harm, or they can soothe and heal. Can we speak our mind clearly and kindly, without getting defensive or going into attack or blame modes?

This community group meets monthly to explore core elements of Mindful Communication:  presence, intention, habits & reactivity, listening & observation, wise speech components, feelings, wise effort, needs, empathy and requests.

We will use meditation, teaching points, reflection, and discussion to deepen our practice of Mindful Communication. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please join facilitators Lauri Flick-Harty and Mark Overs.

Facilitated by:


How do I financially support RIM teachers and programs?
What is Dana and how is it practiced at RIM?
