How to Use Connection Practice Boards

"The world is screaming for an answer that gets to the core of decreasing conflict, emotional distress , and the loss of human potential.  People do not know how to stay connected inside themselves and with others, especially in the face of challenges.  The Connection Practice Boards empower people to consistently move from distress to peace and from confusion to clarity.

How to Use 

  • To process a challenge, you move the feelings and needs magnets from the Feelings & Needs Board onto the Connection Practice Board. This experience results in self-empathy and empathy for the other.
  • Use the 3 steps of Quick Coherence, access an insight and identify an action step.
  • There are places on the Board to write in the challenge, insight, and action.  You may want to take a picture of your Board to save your session.
  • At the end, the magnets can be moved back and the written items can be erased so the Boards are ready to help resolve the next issue that arises.
