Three Levels and Seven Qualities in Encounter and Conversation

In this course we practise how to follow thoughts, sense emotional messages and grasp underlying motivations (or will directions) in conversations.  The workshops aim to help us become aware of the different approaches we can take to meet daily interactions in life more consciously, more effectively and less charged.  Communication skills are introduced through the exploration of seven approaches derived from Seven Planetary Qualities.  By emphasising the importance of authentic and compassionate interaction, we aim to widen our range of listening and responsiveness.  We also focus on how to create open spaces and open questions.  Combining Helping Conversation and Destiny Learning we will explore the potential for self-development in the challenging encounters with other people.  Typical incidents out of personal experience will be explored to find individual patterns and personal styles of action and reaction in conflict situations.  We will also look at the dynamics and escalation of conflicts and how it can be insightful to consider the conflict partner’s perspective and find ways to defuse or un-fuel conflicts or challenging situations.
