Using Nonviolent Communication (NVC) AKA compassionate communication, we strengthen our ability to inspire compassion in our communications, with others and ourselves. NVC reframes how we express ourselves and hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we observe, feel, and need, and and by teaching us to make clear, powerful requests.

In this training you will be presented with skills which will support you when faced with conflict and language which disconnects such as diagnoses, criticisms, condemnations and blaming. You will learn to express yourself honestly without attacking. This will help minimize the likelihood of receiving defensive reactions from others. This practice is designed to give you insight into critical and hostile messages without taking them personally, giving in, losing self-esteem, or giving away your personal power. Compassionate Communication will support you in all relationships including your relationships at work, at home and at play. Especially important, Compassionate Communication will support you in your own internal dialogues, giving you greater understanding and compassion for what drives you.

Cost: $27 presale, $32 drop-in
