This just in from Debra Fine (THE FINE ART OF THE BIG TALK, THE FINE ART OF SMALL TALK).
Appearing on the back cover of the Colorado Free University catalogue--or as it is labeled today, Colorado Expensive University:
The Fine Art of Shutting Up
Do you find yourself getting off the elevator at the wrong floor because you can’t stop talking to someone you met on the way up? Do you avoid libraries and the ballet because the sound of “Shhh!” drives you crazy? Does the song "Sounds of Silence" make your skin crawl? Do you have nightmares about Trappist monks who serenely observe their vow of silence?
This workshop will help you overcome your fear of peace and quiet as you learn how to take a full breath of air into your lungs, talk without food in your mouth, tell a story that actually has a beginning and an ending, give “yes” and “no” answers, engage in conversation without people fleeing your presence, and actually hear what other people say.
Debra Fine is a bestselling author and internationally recognized keynote speaker who has had her own struggles with shutting up.
