SESSION 2—PART 2/3

COMMUNICATION

Pull out your Touch Mat or floor mat and select the side: Communicating for Closeness.

Learn the critical importance of the Pause Place, as a place to slow down and contain your conversation while you access the power of oxytocin for promoting safety.

Today we introduce the Listener and Speaker roles, visit a sample conversation, and complete journaling prompts before you jump on the mat for your first connecting conversation. Afterwards, we’ll wrap up with a reflection exercise.
