The Limits of Communication… And What You Can Do About Them – by Kind Communication

KindCommunication.org

Re-posted From: http://KindCommunication.org/2016/02/21/the-limits-of-communication-and-what-you-can-do-about-them/ Some people come to my workshops, and say:  “Hey, this stuff is great, but doesn’t this stuff only work as long as the other person is also willing to communicate with compassion and honesty?” And my answer is always something like: “Yeah…sorta.  But even if the other person doesn’t want to engage in honest and compassionate dialogue, these tools can still help you in that situation.” First, I am going to explain […]

Profile Picture (if facebook existed on 9/12)

Profile Picture (if facebook existed on 9/12) #ReactionaryNationalism #FlagsAreDivisiveByDefinition My apologies for this perhaps tough observation. I don’t mean to judge anyone, just finally sharing my strong internal reaction to others’ external reactions to the tragedy in Paris a couple months ago. For me, seeing French flags all over facebook echoed the ubiquitous American flags leading up to the current wars [which created this tragedy]. I did feel this round was a bit more based […]

Blaming – by Kind Communication

KindCommunication.org

Re-posted From: http://KindCommunication.org/2016/02/06/blaming/ I want to share this fun cartoon of a small snippet of a Brene Brown talk.  The cartoon is about blaming.  Blaming is pointing the finger and identifying who or what is responsible when something goes wrong. Blaming is an attractive activity.  If I can figure out who or what is responsible for my plans being ruined, my day being thrown off, or for a terrible tragedy then I can establish a […]

Understanding Privilege – by Kind Communication

KindCommunication.org

Re-posted From: http://KindCommunication.org/2016/01/25/understanding-privilege/ I have been born with a tremendous amount of privilege.  I am a straight white male, who grew up in an upper middle-class, Christian home.  All of these different accidental properties of my identity and upbringing carry with them unearned advantages.  These unearned advantages are called “privilege”.  I do not feel guilty about this, nor should I.  Part of the very definition of “privilege” is “unearned”.  It is merely an accident, chance, […]

Empathizing with Your Shadow Side – by Kind Communication

KindCommunication.org

Re-posted From: http://KindCommunication.org/2016/01/04/empathizing-with-your-shadow-side/ We all have a shadow side.  A side of you that you don’t want others to see or notice.  I know I have a shadow side.  There are opinions, feelings, and parts of my personality which I don’t want other people to see.  And it’s not just that I don’t want other people to see them, I also judge those parts of myself as “wrong”, “bad”, or “deficient” Do you know what […]

Global Warming Hiatus… is on Pause

QFC-warming-hiatus

This is, in part, a followup to the long essay I wrote last year: http://SolarNotBombs.org/ Thank you to James Corbett for replying to my question about NOAA’s 2015 study, Possible artifacts of data biases in the recent global surface warming hiatus, and public article, Science publishes new NOAA analysis: Data show no recent slowdown in global warming. NOAA’s new claim includes that “New analyses with these data demonstrate that incomplete spatial coverage also led to underestimates […]
