Practical insights about the meaning of body language will be provided 7 p.m. CT Monday, July 24 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “Body Language: What You Say Before You Say a Word,” features a filmed interview with nonverbal communication expert Jan Hargrave, author of Actions Speak Louder Than Words and Let Me See Your Body Talk.

“Fifty-five percent of communication is nonverbal, 38 percent is from voice inflection, and only 7 percent of communication has to do with the words we say,” said Hargrave, who reports that a better understanding of body language provides a key advantage in sales, business, job interviews, and even romance.

During the program, Lifetree Café participants will have the opportunity to analyze their own body language and what it communicates to others.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
