The Art of Mindful Communication: Living Your Values

In these extraordinarily polarized times, what would it be like if people could truly hear others
and speak their minds in a clear, kind way, without becoming defensive or going on the attack?
Join Talk It Out Radio’s host and Oren Jay Sofer, meditation teacher and communication trainer, the author of a new book, “Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication.” for an engaging conversation about Oren’s work and new book.

Oren’s book is the first to synthesize mindfulness, somatic practices and Nonviolent Communication into simple, yet powerful exercises for healthier, more effective, and satisfying conversation. Whether it’s navigating a
political divide with a friend or relative, managing conflicts at work, or strengthening bonds at
home—communicating effectively is what makes or breaks our relationships. Say What You
Mean offers a clear method, concrete practices, and the vocabulary needed to have meaningful
conversations that bring people together.

Oren Jay Sofer teaches meditation and communication nationally. A member of the Spirit Rock Teachers Council, he holds a degree in Comparative Religion from Columbia University, is a Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, Senior Program Developer at Mindful Schools, and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner for trauma healing. Oren is the author of Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication. Learn more at
