The Communication Practices Course

The Communication Practices Course trains you in the tools to become an even better communicator in any situation. You will engage in one focused practice for each of the 5 weeks and meet weekly with a community to support you with guidance and leadership from the Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson.

Throughout the journey of this course you will be able to produce practical changes in the way you speak and listen to the people in your life so that they hear you and truly understand what you mean.

Each week will be devoted to exploring one practice in your life (e.g. getting crystal clear about what you want to communicate). At the end of each week we will come together on Zoom to debrief and troubleshoot and celebrate each other. Players are always surprised at how well that week went and happy to hear from others on the team.

Why Enroll in This Course?

You will see results immediately in your conversations. You will expand your ability to be present, both to yourself and to others. You will start to find your voice and use it. You will learn how to genuinely clean up communications that didn’t go well and use the occasion to learn. You will not be stopped by those bumps in the road. You will become courageous and unstoppable in your commitment to express yourself in ways that are empowering to everyone in your conversations. 

Some of the Areas We Focus on:

-Setting up an effective dialogue

-Clarifying what you want to say

-How to relate to the other person or group

-Determining how much you want to reveal yourself

-Experiencing your feelings after a conversation you’ve had, whether it went well or poorly (rather than numbing yourself or stopping the feelings)

-How to clean up conversations that don’t go well

-Experiencing the joy of creating a new avenue of connecting with others.

What’s Involved:

You will buddy up and have a 15-minute phone or Zoom conversation(not email or text!) during the week to support each other.

Touching base is extremely effective in making this program a life-changing experience.

Six 90-minute Zoom meetings

Two 30-minute individual sessions with me over the five weeks.

Email access to me is available throughout the entire program.


About Your Coach

Hello. I am the Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson, and I am dedicated to helping leaders and individuals find their voices, master forgiveness, and communication, and love the world into being.

With over 33 years of experience as a Presbyterian minister, I have served in various capacities, including parish ministry, chaplaincy in hospitals and hospices, and college chaplaincy during my seminary years in New York City. My work has also included pastoral counseling in a nursing home where I had the privilege of supporting individuals and families. I have also facilitated weekly grief support groups for a remarkable 17 years. This experience has deepened my understanding of the power of forgiveness and the importance of effective communication in navigating through grief and healing.

In my current ministry as a spiritual life-coach, I empower individuals, families, and work teams to release past upsets that are stuck, embrace forgiveness, and communicate gracefully and powerfully. My coaching programs are designed to help leaders expand their performance and find greater satisfaction in their contributions to others.

My expertise lies in the realms of forgiveness, communication, and grief support. I am passionate about helping individuals organize their lives and bring their visions into existence, allowing them to work harmoniously and find fulfillment.I am driven by a deep commitment to ending unnecessary suffering and guiding leaders towards a life of authenticity, compassion, and positive impact. Together, let's embark on a journey of healing, growth, and creating a world filled with love.

Living in northwest Connecticut, USA, I am constantly inspired by the beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to create a brand new partnership with my former husband. I firmly believe in practicing what I coach, and my personal experiences have shaped my approach to coaching and guiding others.

With warm regards,

Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson
