A Comprehensive Introduction to Nonviolent Communication
What does it take to communicate in any relationship in a way that connects, and is in integrity with your deepest values?
Meditation, prayer, and other practices can connect you to your values. Yet, when you step back into your daily life you can get lost in a swirl of criticism, doubt, and confusion. You don't always see how to really put your values into action in the situations you encounter, especially when it gets heated between you and someone else. You need new tools to find and express compassion, love, and honesty. Where do you start?
Connection & Clarity
It all starts inside of you. It’s about discovering what goes on in you from the moment you perceive something to the moment you respond. Though it might be just a split second, you cycle through a river of thoughts, impulses, images, feelings, and needs. Shedding light on this river helps you to connect to your heart and respond to what's true for you in the moment.
With more understanding and awareness, you get free from the trap of making decisions based on habits, assumptions, or what you think you “should” do. And it's easier to communicate in the way you would like.
In this workshop you will learn to:
- Stay centered in any situation
- Move beyond stalemates and power struggles
- Forgive yourself and others
- Hear the “yes” behind every “no”
- Express anger or disappointment without judgment or blame
- Be flexible without being submissive
- Enjoy openness, honesty, and appreciation
- Share “quality time” all the time
Experience what life could be. When you see the beauty in every beast, you'll live happily ever after. Fairy tale? Come and find out. Join us for this comprehensive introduction to Nonviolent Communication.
