Radical Communication - Month 3 Week 4 with Hala Khouri

September 20 - 24, 2021

Effective and authentic communication is a vital part of building a Beloved community that includes everyone. This requires us to listen deeply, stay grounded even if we’re triggered, and navigate the often complex dynamics of emotions,identity, culture and power. Radical communication asks all of us to hold the complexity of who we are so we can truly listen to one another.

This week we'll be exploring:

  • Self-regulation and communication
  • Mirroring and active listening
  • Curiosity rather than judgement
  • Power and communication


This week's sessions will include:

  • Monday Lecture: Authentic Communication Across Differences | 2 - 3:15pm pdt | 5 - 6:15pm edt
  • Wednesday Practice: Yoga for Self-Awareness and Accountability | 9 - 10:15am pdt | 12 - 1:15pm edt
  • Friday Meditation: Embodying Complexity and an Open Heart | 9 - 10am pdt | 12 - 1pm edt

100% of your contribution to this course helps to support and sustain our network of community leaders, activists, our ongoing scholarship program, and our greater OTM community worldwide who are at the frontlines of change for our collective wellbeing. We greatly appreciate your support!


For your reference: Each week will consist of 3 (three) independent online offerings that will tie into one another and take you on a full experiential journey. The arc and content of this training has been very carefully designed, in deep collaboration with an incredible list of community leaders, activist, and educators.

At OTM, we are committed to accessibility and cultivating diversity in our community and trainings. If you would like to request a discounted rate, please email [email protected] and answer the following questions:

  • If you are from, or belong to, a community that is often under-represented in the yoga community at-large, please describe.
  • How do you foresee using the skills and information offered in this training in your work in the world?

NOTE - We close off all scholarships 24 hours prior to the course start date.

Inclusivity is important to us, and we strive continually to increase accessibility to our trainings.
