Have you ever noticed that even when your formal mindfulness practice is going well you can hit the skids when it's time to communicate with others? Developing an interpersonal mindfulness practice helps us be more fully present with others and oneself. 

This class is based upon the practice of Insight Dialogue and was developed over a period of 10 years. It is the result of a collaboration between the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Metta Programs. 

Note: The bulk of the class time will be spent reflecting and practicing in dyads, using the Insight Dialogue Guidelines developed by Gregory Kramer.
