Wherever you decide to disseminate your story is never a problem. It doesn't always have to be a press release because it's important to know that there are so many ways to tell your story and connect with your audience, may it be through a blog post, social media, or even through a podcast.

Open your imagination and experiment with which works best for you and your audience.

Distractions and triggers do not bother a mindful listener, who is non-judgmental, compassionate and self-aware about any possible reactions.

To practice mindful listening, one needs a partner to practice, and about two minutes. As the partner starts to talk, the listener listens actively and nodes, without uttering a word. After two minutes, the listener can jot down two or three key points, noticing what got them triggered or distracted.

One can switch roles and repeat this roleplay a few times, being aware of the heightened compassion and connection that is formed.

The Art Of Public Speaking

The ability to communicate is the most crucial skill we have.

In Ancient Greece, where educators and philosophers invented language theory, public speaking was a teachable and learnable skill. They didn’t diagnose a shy person suffering from ‘speech anxiety’ to be a bad fit for learning public speaking, but simply a student who needs to learn the larger discipline of rhetoric and speech training. The Greeks had a comprehensive, practical and critical approach towards knowledge, psychology and social interaction, which is sadly missing in this modern age.
