This post is for artists, to help them explain the concept of conversation to non-artists in their communities and to students.
Healing conversation is where only positive and accurate things are said. People are stopped when something inaccurate is said and the accurate substitution is offered. If someone has a tendency to saying inaccurate things, it is addressed. When accurate things that are not positive are said, you have ventured into the realm of therapy. Normal conversation involves sincerely sharing your thoughts and feelings without lying about any of them, as a form of self-expression. Chit-chat is to hear yourself and others speak–just to hear human voices talking about unimportant, non-offensive, non-controversial things.
Hope this helps,
