Systema For Life Podcast - Episode 32: On Communication

" Either you control the messages that you're sending out, or you just send random messages...and that  creates effects in the conversation, the interaction, or the conlfict that you didn't intend."

Glenn Murphy is once again joined by NC SYSTEMA's resident health and wellness guru Howard Jacobson, for a chat about all things relating Systema to human communication.

Including (but not limited to):

  • why facial expressions are unreliable signals of intent
  • how the feet and legs indicate attitude and engagement (in fights, and in conversations)
  • movements that indicate dominance, nervousness, and comfort
  • how we can become better receivers - and transmitters - in order to communicate more clearly
