This presentation and discussion will explore the power of a simple (not easy) skill: inquiring into another person’s experience through open-ended questions. At a time when there are many opinions and viewpoints in the world, the ability to be fully present and to ask questions that are emerging within the space of nowness is important to cultivating harmony in relationships and communities.
ABOUT THE TEACHER
Shastri Janet Solyntjes has been a member of the Shambhala community since 1984 and supports mindfulness teachers-in-training through online study groups and individual mentoring. She has taught meditation for Naropa University, the Center for Mindfulness, the Engaged Mindfulness Institute, and Mindful Leader. Janet has been practicing this skill in her work with meditation communities and finds the power and magic of present-moment inquiry an expression of warriorship.
