What is RelaShunJazz
Human relationships are anything but simple. It would seem like your relationship with your spouse, your children or your family is direct. Well, communication with a purpose seems very concrete and to the point. If this is really the case, then why are some couples going to relationship counselors, or requiring the touch of a mediator to navigate their communication issues? Why? It’s because real communication is very detailed and very unpredictable. Like bad weather, we don’t always know the appropriate course of action to take. We just know that we must avert it or ride it out. Jazz is art form that ebbs and flows and a running theme in jazz is syncopation. Communication is done in a variety of ways and there is no wrong way to do it. It’s a fluid, living, breathing, constantly changing mode of words, phrases, movements, gestures, and sounds all encoded and decoded using a brain near you.
I’m sure that the foundation of many disagreements are almost always communication failures. I’m also pretty positive that we’ve all at some point tried to anticipate what’s best for another person. As parents of children, it’s easy to do this because we are working to mold our children. However, it’s very important that we handle with care. We don’t want our children to be so disciplined that they are afraid to ask questions, seek help, or emote about how an event in their lives makes them feel. There’s a delicate balance in communicating, that we need to be aware of, and that’s RelaShunJazz in 300 words or less.
