A Taste of Collaborative Communication

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Collaborative Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication or NVC) offers powerful tools and perspectives to support:

  • ease and flow in your interactions with people
  • talking about subjects you've avoided or fought about in ways that bring you closer
  • kindness for yourself and others
  • empowerment to live your values and have more of what matters to you

This three-hour experiential workshop offers a taste of new tools, insights, and practices that support an inner shift to a more peaceful and enlivened way of being and relating. While fuly realizing these benefits takes more learning and an ongoing practice, this workshop offers a place to start.
