(1 credit)  This course builds upon an introduction to Compassionate Communication (such as CST317) to focus on practicing the view and skills of Compassionate Communication and explore how that relates to and interacts with Buddhist practice. Compassion Communication practices will focus on offering empathy, setting boundaries, and navigating conflict. Given that we are in a Buddhist context, we will talk about the relationship between Compassionate Communication and Buddhist concepts and practices, including meditation, mindfulness, ethics, and the nature of self. This course is an intermediate level course which assumes prior introduction to Compassionate Communication.
