Before we get started on discussing specifics on non-verbal communication let's put out some definitions to help you better understand the language that is connected to this discipline.

Non-verbal communications is the process of communication through sending and receiving wordless (mostly visual) cues between people.  It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as body language (kinesics), in truth non-verbal communication encompasses much more.
