This is a unique opportunity to learn the foundations of Heart-Conscious Communication (NVC) in one weekend, speaking your truth honestly and with compassion and listening empathically to what's in the heart of any message.
There will be plenty of opportunity to practice, using meaningful examples from your own life, including family life, work life, partnership, and social change.
Friday night is a first look at Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication presenting you with an opportunity to see how you use this language in your own life. On Saturday morning we will use NVC to see within ourselves the beauty of who we are by practicing the art of self empathy. This process will include comprehension, demonstration and practice with the support of small groups. On Saturday afternoon we will use NVC to deepen our intimate relations with family. Utilizing material developed for my Language for Lovers workshops we will come to see the beauty of the fun - and the beauty of the not so fun - aspects of relationship.
On Sunday we will turn our attention to the larger community and examine the power of NVC to assist Social Change. How can we build the world we want to live in where everyone's needs and values can be celebrated? But first how can we deal with our despair for the way things are right now? Then we will finish the day using NVC for healing emotional wounds and freeing blocks to life.
We are offering this multi day format to provide a solid foundation for a lifelong practice of Nonviolent Communication; however this is just the beginning.
