My Silent Retreat - Oren Sofer & Hunter Clarke-Fields [171]

Play

Hunter talks to Oren Sofer about My Silent Retreat.

Some big takeaways from this episode include: 1. It takes time for our bodies and minds to “detox” from our distracted lives. 2. We are often doing (checking the phone, checking of the list, eating) to avoid just being with what is. 3. Along with feeling more can come equanimity—the capacity to hold what arises without being thrown of one’s feet.

Oren Jay Sofer teaches mindfulness, meditation and Nonviolent Communication in both secular and Buddhist contexts. He’s the author of the book Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication, a practical guidebook for having more effective, satisfying conversations.

I recently went on my first-ever, seven-day silent Lovingkindness meditation retreat with the Insight Meditation Society. Not only was there no talking (which can be hard for a podcaster!), but also no reading, no writing, and no contact with the outside world for seven days. What was it like? In this special episode Oren Sofer, teacher at the retreat and author of Say What You Mean, asks me questions about my first retreat. You’ll learn what it was like, when I cried, the benefits I experienced, and more.

Episode 054: Oren Sofer: Mindful and Non-violent Communication: A Path to More Nourishing Relationships

Play
Read more

In Episode 054 of A Medicinal Mind, Wisdom and Wellbeing, I welcome a visionary in the field of mindfulness and deliberate, non-violent communication Oren Sofer.

Oren’s background is beyond fascinating. As you will hear in the podcast, he brings years of training in meditation from the Buddhist spiritual tradition as well training seeking to transform the way we communicate and interact with others.

Formally speaking, he has a degree in Comparative Religion from Columbia University, and spent two and a half years of living as an (renunciate) at various branch monasteries. Today, his teaching combines classical Buddhist training with the accessible language of secular mindfulness.

In this conversation, we begin the exploration with a look at Oren’s early childhood, its spiritual roots and his earliest experiences delving into the world of intimate awareness. Getting rather personal, Oren shares one of his most powerful experiences early in his life beginning his push to wanting to further understand the depth of emotion and what it really means to be human.

Oren offers his perspective on the power of loss and sorrow, letting us all see the universal nature of this experience and the beautiful acts of compassion and connection that can happen my allowing ourselves to fully experience it.

Beginning our deepening discussion of violence and non-violence Oren outlines how human beings seek both consciously and unconsciously to meet various needs and that this pursuit often times can lead to needs not being met and interpersonal conflict.

Defining violence as “any avoidable impairment of human needs,” Oren shares insight from Johan Galtung as to what perhaps really underlies an act of violence and how as a society we may be committing more acts of violence than we really know.

Stepping into the practical. Oren provides us with a framework for seeking understanding as well as collaborative clarification in order to address others needs and our own in a unified and non-violent manner.

Drawing from his just released book: Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication, Oren provides some of the most essential practices, techniques and tools for achieving more constructive clarity in our relationships, and ultimately meet your needs.

As you will hear throughout the conversation, Oren’s passion and expertise for the craft of mindful and non-violent communication and I cannot urge you enough to order Oren’s book: Say What You Mean. I have yet to find another book that practically addresses the most challenging aspects of cultivating nourishing relationships and engaging in the sticky, difficult conversations like Oren’s.
