Free Nonviolent Communication Workshop

From: Stephen D.
Sent on: Wednesday, January 13, 2010 10:01 AM


In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?s legacy of nonviolence, this
FREE workshop introduces the principles and techniques of nonviolent
communication (NVC), presented by guest NVC teacher Joe Brummer. It is
scheduled to take place on Martin Luther King Day:


Monday, January 18, 2010, 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM (Snow date is January 19).

When: Monday, January 18,[masked]:30 PM-9:30 PM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US
& Canada).

Where: 19 Kinsey Rd New Hartford CT


By learning the skills of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) we can begin to
develop and maintain effective partnerships with our friends, family,
community members, and co-workers through a more skillful approach to
communication based on honesty and openness.

Participants in this workshop will learn:

1. To express themselves in ways that can be heard

2. To truly hear what others are expressing regardless of the words
used

3. To connect with the universal needs driving all human behavior

4. To express gratitude without the use of praise and moral judgments

5. To use language as a tool of connection rather than control



Twice the victim of violent crimes, Joe Brummer has spent years exploring
why people commit acts of violence against others. He has studied
nonviolence, conflict resolution and clocked hundreds of hours at the
mediation table. He has worked with the Institute for the Study and Practice
of Nonviolence to bring nonviolence to youth in schools, studied with the
Community Mediation Center of RI and serves on their Juvenile Restorative
Justice Advisory Board. In the winter 2008, Joe attended the International
Intensive Training on Nonviolent Communication. Joe is also the Connecticut
representative for New England NVC.

This workshop is hosted by Dae Yen Sa International Buddhist Temple, located
at 19 Kinsey Road in New Hartford CT. Many thanks to Master Dae San Sunim
and Sue Yen Sunim for welcoming this event, and to Joe Brummer for donating
his wisdom and energy to enrich our community!
