The Power of Communication
In this video, Chris and Marshall have a conversation about the power of communication and the role of the voice in connecting people. Marshall introduces himself as a world bridger, someone who connects one thing to another, and shares how he started as a competitive poet in the slam poetry community. He performs an excerpt from one of his poems, "Touch Screen," which critiques the over-reliance on social media and technology. Chris and Marshall discuss the importance of tone and texture in storytelling and the ways in which people use language to convey their emotions and ideas. They also explore the connection between the body and the breath and how mindfulness practices can help to regulate the nervous system. The conversation ends with a discussion of Marshall's website,, which offers resources for people looking to improve their communication skills.
