Relationships 101 ~ The BASICS of Relating (ONLINE)

  • 171 W. Thompson St. Philadelphia, PA, 19122 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What does it take to communicate in any relationship in a way that connects, and is in integrity with your deepest values?  

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.

3 classes – 2 hours each

  • 171 W. Thompson St. Philadelphia, PA, 19122 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

You are really getting the value of putting the skills you learned in the NVC classes toward your own relationships.  You see how wonderful a difficult conversation can be, when connection isn’t lost in the struggle to be understood.

You can even guess your own needs and/or someone else’s needs —when you think back on a conversation that was so challenging. 

However, actually doing it in ‘real time’ or going back after a challenge has been something that you haven’t yet mastered.

NVC in Real Time.  How the heck can I do it?  I remember, I want to, and yet…I don’t do it.

This series of classes is for you!!

We will be working with a set of practices that guide us through ‘what to do’ when we are having conflict.  And we will practice in a variety of ways putting these practices in to real time:

1.  Bringing your life situation into the room and working with others who will sit in as the other person or as you, depending upon what might offer you the most insight.

2.  We will be working on what comes up in the room.  Sometimes we believe that in workshops, nothing real is happening.  Just a bunch of learners sitting in a room.  Not true. Even in a workshop setting, we have feelings and needs.  Our practice will be to notice them in real time and then make choices about how to navigate.  

3. We will offer a few practice skills (think repetitive practices) so that when things come up in life, we will know the skill and use it—right in the moment. Kind of like a tennis player repeating the service motion over and over. Or hitting a lob. That way, when one comes up in a match, the motor skills are right there. If you aren’t a tennis fan, kind of like a singer practicing scales. So the voice (vocal chords?) are prepared and ‘just know’ what the sound of C is. You will be prepared when your NVC skills are needed (which, is always, isn’t it)?

If you have been longing for the integration of the NVC practice into your own life, then come and practice with me. This is how it gets easier.

Women's Circle

This circle is meant for women to connect with each other to be heard, to find confidence in who they are in the world, to create more of what we want in our lives and to shine brightly.

If you are inspired to share with other women, learn from other women, find and offer support with / from other women, then this group is for you.  

womens circle terrie dancing.jpg

Focused on truly manifesting the life we say we want, we will gather and explore the means, the practice and customs that sustain us in those things.  The hope of this circle is to find sisterhood and care and connection through our practices when we gather.

Relational Activities will center around Singing, Dancing, Storytelling and Silence which cultural anthropologist, Angeles Arrien identified as the four most common ways that human create wellness, community and connection.

While open to shifts as we find how best to serve all over time, this circle will begin with a practice that looks something like this.  A blend of being led, and leading, sharing our gifts and receiving others’ wisdom, in a structure that allows for flexibility and an intention for all to deepen their sense of their own value.

Trusting spirit, our bodies, our deepest heart’s longing, our strength and each other, we build together a sisterhood deeply bonded in care.

We will shift our focus with the seasons, this series of 5 gatherings begins on Wednesday, August 1 ~ 6:30pm til 8:30pm.   The rest of the dates are:  August 29, September 12, October and October 24.  The request is that you commit for a season, and choose after whether or not you would like to continue, ask for something different or choose something different for your life.

The In Other Words Weekend Workshop is a whirlwind.  People love it.  The weekend is designed to be jam packed with content.   The intention is to give people not only the practical content of Nonviolent Communication, the information is nested in a context as well. 

And, it is impossible to share in all in that amount of time.  

Level 2 developed in order to offer you more content, more practice, more skills in how to navigate every day life with a bit more artistry and confidence.  2B continues with more learning.   

Topics we cover in level 2B:
~How anger helps us connect to our needs
~Deepening our capacity to make requests in the moment
~Understanding why we might make a request, and why we might not make a request
~Offering requests as gifts
~And maybe more!

IN OTHER WORDS/Nonviolent Communication - Advanced Class

  • 171 W. Thompson St. Philadelphia, PA, 19122 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

You are really getting the value of putting the skills you learned in the NVC classes toward your own relationships.  You see how wonderful a difficult conversation can be, when connection isn’t lost in the struggle to be understood.

You can even guess your own needs and/or someone else’s needs —when you think back on a conversation that was so challenging. 

However, actually doing it in ‘real time’ or going back after a challenge has been something that you haven’t yet mastered.

NVC in Real Time.  How the heck can I do it?  I remember, I want to, and yet…I don’t do it.

This series of classes is for you!!

We will be working with a set of practices that guide us through ‘what to do’ when we are having conflict.  And we will practice in a variety of ways putting these practices in to real time:

1.  Bringing your life situation into the room and working with others who will sit in as the other person or as you, depending upon what might offer you the most insight.

2.  We will be working on what comes up in the room.  Sometimes we believe that in workshops, nothing real is happening.  Just a bunch of learners sitting in a room.  Not true. Even in a workshop setting, we have feelings and needs.  Our practice will be to notice them in real time and then make choices about how to navigate.  

3. We will offer a few practice skills (think repetitive practices) so that when things come up in life, we will know the skill and use it—right in the moment. Kind of like a tennis player repeating the service motion over and over. Or hitting a lob. That way, when one comes up in a match, the motor skills are right there. If you aren’t a tennis fan, kind of like a singer practicing scales. So the voice (vocal chords?) are prepared and ‘just know’ what the sound of C is. You will be prepared when your NVC skills are needed (which, is always, isn’t it)?

If you have been longing for the integration of the NVC practice into your own life, then come and practice with me. This is how it gets easier.

Women's Circle

This circle is meant for women to connect with each other to be heard, to find confidence in who they are in the world, to create more of what we want in our lives and to shine brightly.

If you are inspired to share with other women, learn from other women, find and offer support with / from other women, then this group is for you.

Focused on truly manifesting the life we say we want, we will gather and explore the means, the practice and customs that sustain us in those things.  The hope of this circle is to find sisterhood and care and connection through our practices when we gather.

Relational Activities will center around Singing, Dancing, Storytelling and Silence which cultural anthropologist, Angeles Arrien identified as the four most common ways that human create wellness, community and connection.

While open to shifts as we find how best to serve all over time, this circle will begin with a practice that looks something like this.  A blend of being led, and leading, sharing our gifts and receiving others’ wisdom, in a structure that allows for flexibility and an intention for all to deepen their sense of their own value.

Trusting spirit, our bodies, our deepest heart’s longing, our strength and each other, we build together a sisterhood deeply bonded in care.

We will shift our focus with the seasons, this series of 5 gatherings begins on Wednesday, August 1 ~ 6:30pm til 8:30pm.   The rest of the dates are:  August 29, September 12, October and October 24.  The request is that you commit for a season, and choose after whether or not you would like to continue, ask for something different or choose something different for your life.
