Sattvic communication involves understanding things rightly as preliminary to response. In sattvic listening we genuinely focus on the other person. In this mode of illuminated, compassionate non-attachment, we are alert and attentive to the other person, without motive to coerce or manipulate. A roadblock does not necessarily mean that the responder lacks love or caring. Mastering sattvic communication skills offers us a powerful way to communicate our caring, concern and affection.
