All too often, the words we express create walls when we were hoping for connection or understanding. This workshop provides practices to integrate the principles and processes of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), an internationally recognized process for resolving conflict and clarifying and living one’s values. NVC also is a powerful tool for social change, and a language of compassion for any life situation.
In a fun, lively, and supportive environment, we integrate practices that help you examine the way you think, communicate, and relate to yourself and others in your life. NVC can liberate you from a variety of thought and communication patterns, including judging self and others; taking things personally; acting from fear, obligation, and guilt; and suffering in anger and depression. NVC can support you in expressing yourself honestly without blame, judgments, or criticism; hearing others' pain without trying to fix them; and becoming more effective at everything you do.
