A conversation about the art & science of connection
Get this one-of-a-kind extensive training series to take on conflict in your life confidently, powerfully and with ease.
Jonathan Miller, Founder of Mindful Communication, interviews thinkers and influencers in an attempt to explore the human condition and how we relate to one another and ourselves.
In an increasingly polarized world, our ability to connect with one another has never been more important. Despite the need for it, disconnection is increasing, conflicts persist and few know how to approach tough conversations in an effective manner.
If things continue this way, there will be more polarization and more disconnection. We will continue to lack the skills to have difficult conversations, and we expect the majority of us to settle and "cope with" our most troubling relationships and issues.
With this podcast, we will see a shift regarding the importance of communication. With that, we will see deeper relationships all around us and, ultimately, a stronger and more resilient society.
Our words have the power to shape our reality and impact others in profound ways. They also act as a window to our minds and directly influence how we experience the world. Exploring topics of communication, mindfulness, self-awareness, mindset, coaching, emotional intelligence, nonviolence, and more, we’ll uncover what works (and what doesn’t work) to help you live a more connected, empowered and fulfilling life.
Thanks for your interest in being a guest on the podcast! Since the podcast's launch, my criteria of who comes on as a guest has tightened to ensure the best experience for listeners.
I am always looking for experts, influencers and thought-leaders who have unique insights to share.
Topics and Themes
The theme of the podcast is around the "art and science of connection." The primary focus is on connection between individuals, though this can go beyond the individual to groups and to oneself.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of topics I am interested in having experts speak on:
How to Get Selected and be a Great Guest
In preparation to get selected for the podcast and make the episode a memorable one for listeners, consider taking on the following suggestions:
Commitment to Antiracism Work
As a part of my desire to live in accordance with my values for equality, justice and integrity, it is a requirement that all of my guests have made a clear and conscious effort toward the disestablishment of a system that oppresses the Black, Indigenous and People of Colour communities.
I expect that any and all guests that appear on the show have made some effort to understand their own hidden racial biases.
If you have not, please ensure that you do this all-important work prior to requesting to come onto the show. There are a plethora of resources and references available online.
One resource that has helped me tremendously is Layla Saad's book Me and White Supremacy. If you have not yet done any antiracism work, consider reading this book and supporting the author by buying a copy for yourself.
