Despite our best intentions to create harmonious communication with others, when we're triggered or stimulated into feelings from the past, we need empathy ourselves. We practice giving this empathy to each other here and so begin internalizing an empathetic presence that begins to come online automatically. Come practice the principles of Non-Violent/Compassionate Communication with us and listening!

"Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder"
