About the Book

With a passion for connecting with people, author Nikki Porter opens an honest and vulnerable conversation about the importance of clear and mindful communication in achieving healthy relationships and a happy life. In The Conscious Communicator, she uses her experience with horses to add insight to where miscommunications, unnecessary drama, and frustration originate. Porter discusses concepts used to train horses which focus on conscious, clear, and compassionate communication and applies them to all relationships. With a mix of research and honest, personal perspective, Porter encourages you to become more conscious of your communication with others by shining the light inward and allowing you to change your approach and perspective when interacting with people in all facets of life. Porter argues you must become conscious of your thoughts and emotions in order to take responsibility for how you communicate daily. The Conscious Communicator offers exercises that determine your communication strengths and weaknesses. It reminds you to live a life true to yourself by creating healthy boundaries and letting go of what doesn’t serve your growth and happiness. Along with the encouragement to become more mindful, she reassures you this isn’t a quest for perfection where you’ll never encounter an argument again, it’s a pursuit of creating and maintaining relationships which bring joy.
