Whether it’s within our families, in our romantic relationships, with our kids, at work, or even with friends, many of us wish to break free from unfulfilling dynamics that keep recurring, despite our efforts to improve the situation. Disheartened, we might tend to trivialize our discontent and tell ourselves “C’est la vie”, or “We just have to deal with it”, like everyone else.
Transforming our interpersonal dynamics requires a profound shift in our way of being, both within ourselves and with each other. This change requires effort and practice, just like learning a new sport, a new musical instrument or a new language.
The most effective way to learn a new language is to live in a country where it is spoken. In this immersive context, we learn more than just theoretical knowledge, syntax and grammar; this type of experiential learning allows us to integrate the customs, mentality and culture of the country’s inhabitants, which is a far richer experience.
In a similar way, the Authentic Dialogue Immersion Program offers the optimal conditions for learning and growth: an evolutionary journey through seven workshops, Dialogue Coaching Sessions, and practice sessions with your peers.
Three essential skills
Throughout the program, you will develop three fundamental skills of Authentic Dialogue:
- Authentic expression : expressing your thoughts and feelings clearly and honestly, increasing the chances of being heard.
- Empathic listening : hearing what the other is expressing through their words and gestures, so as to truly understand what they are experiencing.
- Self-empathy : exploring one’s own experience in order to make sense of it and thus make conscious choices in alignment with one’s values.
