UCR OSHER PRESENTS Cultivating Techniques of Authentic Speech and Deep Listening Exploring Relational Mindfulness Saturday June 2 10 a.m.–4 p.m. UCR Extension Center 1200 University Ave., Riverside Language and speech are two of the greatest gifts we have ever been given. They provide us the ability to connect with another living, feeling human being. Come spend a day exploring the amazing power of words and learning how to use that power to create a more fertile ground for connection in all of our relationships. Together we will discover greater intimacy and understanding in our personal relationships, more effective communication in work and professional relationships, and learn strategies for flourishing in difficult and challenging relationships.
