Unless you have the training, it can be easy to talk at people rather than learning how to talk to them, leaving you lonely and disconnected. In this episode, I introduce you step-by-step to the simple, life changing practice of “tracking impact” and creating rich connection in conversation.
1:21 My client told me that our sessions were different
2:04 “Tracking impact” is the practice that shifts talking at to talking to someone
2:45 The utterly socially awkward version of me from college
3:30 I ask you for impact.
5:02 Being like a memory foam mattress in conversation
5:45 I asked my client a strange question, but it was what he came to me to learn
7:15 Conversations don’t have to be dead – they can be alive, spontaneous and heartfelt
7:48 This week’s homework and a short demo with my husband
Resources: Many of these forms of communication I learned from the practice of Circling. There are several different schools of Circling. I gravitate most to what’s called “Integral Circling”, which you can read about here: https://integralcentered.com/circling/.
