    Communication: Its Art and Soul


    Language is the marvel of the human species. With carefully chosen words, "we can shape events in each other’s brains with exquisite precision."5 We can sow the seed of an idea; inspire fear, hope, or trust; collaborate; converse; argue; reason; or love.

    Communication is the constant of our existence: done well, it can alter the landscape of our lives. Effective communication improves the way we do business; the way we conduct our domestic lives and our relations with friends and acquaintances; and the way we share our deepest emotions, thoughts, and inspirations. From the time of the Greek Sophists, who taught their students to use skilled rhetoric to gain power, through Dale Carnegie’s still-popular How to Win Friends and Influence People, people have always wanted to know how to improve their communication.

    Despite the many volumes of self-help literature and the profusion of courses on this topic, there  is more to be said. Communication: Its Art and Soul, a new six-session course by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), distills ancient Jewish wisdom and couples it with the latest developments in psychological research in the quest to find the secrets behind healthy and effective communication.

    Communication : Its Art and Soul predicates its examination of mundane conversation and dialogue on  the back of a hallowed principle: the injunction to love your fellow as yourself. Communication requires us to inhabit the reality of another, to enter their mind and identify with their perspective, no matter how foreign it may seem. Thus, loving our fellow as ourselves, that great principle of the Torah, is the bedrock upon which good communication is built.

    This course aims to construct a coherent vision of what is worth saying and then to provide practical knowledge of how to go about saying it as timely a pursuit today as always.
