on the seminal work of Marshall Rosenberg,
this weekend workshop will provide
participants with a basic grounding in the
theory and practice of Nonviolent
Communication. Nonviolent Communication offers
a way of approaching the basic flow of life:
expressing and receiving. Its root is
compassion and understanding for ourselves and
others. During the weekend, we will exercise
our ability to notice what we are feeling,
identify needs in a situation, communicate our
needs clearly, make requests, and learn to
elicit compassionately the needs of others.
Skillful listening to ourselves and others
invite us to greater self-awareness and
self-compassion, and a growing ability to live
compassionately in all our relationships.
Nonviolent Communication will help you to:
and sustain fulfilling relationships;
open to others in response to painful
judgments and criticisms;
yourself clearly so that you are most likely
to be heard;
more attentively to others to get at their
with compassion people whose actions seem
unjust or oppressive; and
with others and not judge yourself.
