The Heartless Mind: The Power of Positive Interruption

Posted on Jan 30 2015 under Challenging Conversations, Previous Programs


Susan Gillis ChapmanWhat is the difference between communication when it’s open and when it’s closed? When our defensive barriers go up, we disconnect not only from other people, but also from our own humanity. In this program, we’ll explore an innovative approach to communication and conflict resolution training that comes from the tradition of contemplative psychology and mindfulness practice, using simple methods that have profound results.


Susan Gillis Chapman has over thirty years experience as a contemplative psychologist in a variety of settings, from a maximum security prison in Alaska to a buddhist monastic retreat centre in Nova Scotia. She’s currently on the teaching faculty for Karuna Training, Shambhala International and GreenZone Conversations, offering workshops in Europe and North America. Her book, The Five Keys to Mindful Communication, was published in 2012 and she’s currently working on her second book,The Mindful Communication Workbook. She lives with her husband in Vancouver, Canada.
