Green Zone Institute programs utilize mindfulness meditation and the techniques of Contemplative Psychology and the Contemplative Arts. Mindful Communication goes beyond communication skill building. While learning new skills is important, if we don’t identify and relate to the emotional states we inhabit during challenging communication, following “correct” rules or patterns will still produce harmful and ineffective results. In contrast, if we learn to recognize and take advantage of our natural open state of mind (‘The Green Light’), communication can be genuine, fresh and lively. This allows for creative and unexpected solutions with connection and precision, honesty and care.


Here's What Our Satisfied Customers Say

"We were trapped in the same cycle of disagreement and detachment. Now we have found our playful sides again"
Parent (of teens)
“I feel like I learned more in the Green Zone Leader course than I did in my Masters program in Counseling. And that cost me $100,000.”
L. V.
"I could see in action how the material offered so such practical wisdom that almost immediately enhanced my relationship with my children and partner and friends and family.”
E. B.
"I’m very grateful for these teachings to help me through some hard situations in my life.”
Mindfulness Trainer
“In academia, you get all kinds of models and methods but they remain rather abstract (especially in humanities and social sciences). But this course is hands-on."
Dr. MR
