Welcome to another episode of the Decoding Purpose Podcast.
One thing I have noticed in my own world, and in talking to others in my network is that more than 6 months into this global pandemic, it's fair to say that we are all starting to feel a little weary. For some of us that might be translating as stress or worry. For others, it might be irritation, anger or even rage. I know there are many people out there feeling the full weight of depression and anxiety - because let's face it. Regardless of the silver lining moments of which I might say there are many, this is still an incredibly difficult time.
So I ask you, just as I ask myself, how is that manifesting in my life. How is that manifesting in your relationships with yourself and others close to you. What is it that you need to feel seen or feel heard? What is it that you need to give those around you, so that they can feel your love and support.
Because at the end of day, we have all been pulled apart. For some of us friends, families and lovers are simply getting by day by day - with many hours and many miles between them and those that they love. Even those of us with our families by our sides, we can still feel isolated and lost inside our thoughts, our feelings and our weariness of a year that has felt like groundhog day. So How are you feeling? How are you really feeling?
Because despite the distance real or experienced, emotional intimacy is the one and the only thing that can keep us truly connected. And intimacy can only happen through one door. The door of purposeful and mindful communication.
And that brings me to today's guest. Jonathan Miller has spent hundreds of hours in deliberate communication practice with a focus on conflict resolution. The catalyst of an argument with his wife on a road trip led him to the realisation that applying purpose in not only how we speak, but also in how we respond enables us to build bridges to a deep level of emotional intimacy and conscious connection.
What I love about Jonathon is that there is no bravado claiming that he is anything other than a normal, down to earth human who realised that the art communication was a key in his ability to create deeply meaningful relationships. That said there is nothing normal about his pursuit to own his story, and to understand the stories of others in a more conscious way. As a result he became a Certified Professional Coach and has done extensive training in Nonviolent Communication. He is also a dedicated Vipassana meditation practitioner, mastering the art of purposeful presence.
So without further delay 'let's talk' with an incredible voice of communication mastery. Jonathan Miller.
