Deconstructing the HierarchyNonjudgmental Communication Communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships she or he makes with others and what happens to each in the world-Virginia Satir Elements of CommunicationVirgnia Satir We bring our BodiesWe bring our ValuesWe bring our ExpectationsWe bring our Sense Organs-eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin We bring our Ability to Talk-How we Talk We bring our Brains/Knowledge

The Communication DanceVirginia Satir You are face to face with me. Your senses take in what I look like, how I sound, what I smell like, and, if you happened to touch me, how I feel to you. Your brain then reports what this means to you, calling on your past experiences, your book learning. Depending on your brain reports, you feel comfortable or uncomfortable, your body is loose or tight.

Meanwhile, I am going through something similar,. I too, see, hear, feel something, think something, have a past, and have values and expectations and my body is dong something.
