Presented by Jennie Moreau, Executive Speaking and Compassionate Communications Coach, Actor
As part of a Compassionate Conversations Series, I designed and delivered workshops in the corporate world to investigate and work with triggers, both personally and professionally. With my acting students I introduced concepts of compassion to enable them to overcome nervousness, support each other, and create roles from a place of non judgment. Within my family, I was able to bear witness to my father’s death in a way I never expected, empathize with and support the healthcare workers who were part of our journey, and heal relationships with estranged family members through compassionate conversations. I will share some of the ACT techniques I used in these various settings, the impact they had on participants as well as myself, and lead people through an interactive exercise and debrief session.
