The Art of Meta-Conversation
I’m really only writing this text introduction to get you to click play on the video below. My goal is to capture your interest enough that you’ll watch the video, but without giving away so much of the content that the video will seem redundant. Why am I telling you all this? Because it’s all part of the art of meta-conversation.
Meta-conversation happens when we have a conversation about the conversation we’re having. Meta-conversation adds a new dimension to communication. It can increase intimacy by exposing your inner process to the people you’re speaking with, and it can increase awareness by helping you pay attention to how your inner experience is influencing your interactions.
At this point, I’m just hoping you’re curious enough that you’ll proceed to the video. That’s really where the good stuff is, and I’m worried that I may have said too much already.
(Actually, before you start the video, I notice I’m a little embarrassed about the sound quality. We seem to have blown out the mic on this one, but I want to share it with you anyway. I apologize in advance for how fuzzy I am!)[jwplayer config=”interchange” file=”http://www.interchangecounseling.com/videos/art-of-meta-conversation.flv” image=”http://www.interchangecounseling.com/images/videos/art-of-meta-conversation.jpg”]
