Communication is the way in which we understand ourselves and others. It is the door-way to discovery and learning. It is the mirror that we go through to find a common voice that sometimes says a lot even without words. Being such a fundamental topic, this time, we are going to explore communication from the perspective of one of its key components: listening. When we listen, we are aware. There’s a silence in between each word, sound or gesture that somehow tells the truth. We listen to ourselves by acknowledging our emotion and intuition, our inner voice. We listen, feel and understand others through their gestures, expression and sometimes, because they are our friends, family or acquaintances, we just know them. This online gathering will begin by setting the intention (spread love, not fear), then each participant will share where they are from and why they chose to join the call, from here we will move into smaller break-out rooms. Each break-out room will be facilitated to keep the conversation flowing so that everyone has a chance to share. The facilitators will share fun conversation starters, ensuring a light conversation that helps everyone experience a joyful evening together, while learning more about themselves and others. We welcome all, no judgment or criticism... just Love! This is a safe place for people to show up, to be real, and to know that they are loved, just as they are. Please join us in our discussion or simply observe and take in some new ideas. With much Love and appreciation! The Conscious Connections Team “Communication is much more than talking. It is learning to listen and convey the understanding that one has heard not only what was said, but also what was meant.” – Mary H. Guindon
“Self-awareness” is about focusing your awareness on yourself. It’s your ability to notice your feelings, your physical sensations, your reactions, your habits, your behaviors and your thoughts. You are aware of all those different aspects of yourself as if you were another person observing you. Self-awareness is about being honest with yourself. We all have a self-image of how we want others to perceive us. You might view yourself as punctual, but in reality you are often late to appointments. Self-awareness is about focusing on the reality of your behavior and not on the story you tell yourself about yourself. Here is a practical exercise of self-awareness : - Are you willing to be wrong about your thoughts ? - Are you willing to let the people in your life show you how you respond to fear ? - Think of one person that you love : In what ways is this person here to help you become more aware and more connected to your highest self ? It is all about self-awareness and the ability to pause and observe our reactions to events and people around us.
