LGBTQ Leadership Lunch Series: “Align Your Identity with your Voice”
February 27, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join the LGBTQ Center Tuesday, February 27th in Union Room 2518 for a catered lunch and a workshop on the intersection between voice and identity, led by John Patrick.
In this experiential workshop, we will explore theories and practices of the Miller Voice Method (MVM) to improve your capacities of expression, effective listening, compassion, and communication under duress. The MVM is a mind-body approach that develops deeper levels of consciousness of who we are, what we desire, and current behavior patterns that either align or belie aspects of identity. Identity and communication are two salient concepts for LGBTQ+ identified people. This workshop addresses self-perception and perception by others, which affect queer people daily.
The goal is to develop skills that better align what we intend to communicate with what is received by our partners, friends, colleagues, and the world-at-large. This is how we get our individualized needs met more sustainably. This is how a village better supports its members to effect change. This is a way to nurture wounds and then be able to communicate powerfully through the experience of those wounds.
