This Mindfulness in Relationships & Interactions course is designed to teach students how to avoid communication pitfalls with Mindfulness. Principals covered in this course are applicable to all types of relationships.  You will learn how to relate to yourself, your partner, family, co-workers, and others with Mindful Awareness while helping others do the same with you.  You will understand the expectations and reality of things as they are and the most potent natural resource for a successful relationship.

Lack of skill to communicate effectively can leave one feeling lonely, unappreciated, frustrated, stressed out and unable to be at ease and happy.  If you have difficulty with any of your relationships this course can help. Learn what communication pitfalls are, the solutions and how to manage the three areas of attentiveness and interaction that make your relationships fulfilling and effortless.
