Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life
Discuss "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, 3rd Edition: Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships" by Marshall Rosenberg PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND SO WAITLISTED READERS CAN JOIN, thanks! Link to book: From the Amazon entry: "An enlightening look at how peaceful communication can create compassionate connections with family, friends, and other acquaintances, this international bestseller uses stories, examples, and sample dialogues to provide solutions to communication problems both at home and in the workplace. Guidance is provided on identifying and articulating feelings and needs, expressing anger fully, and exploring the power of empathy in order to speak honestly without creating hostility, break patterns of thinking that lead to anger and depression, and communicate compassionately. Included in the new edition is a chapter on conflict resolution and mediation." Questions we may discuss: - What were three quotes that resonated with you? - What is one scenario you can apply the principles of this book to? - Was there anything that surprised you? - Did anything about this book bother you? - Did anything in this book change your mind? - What topics were unclear or left unanswered? - If everyone you knew read and applied the principles in this book, how would the world be different? We still love getting insight from attendees even if you haven't been able to read the whole book, so don't let that deter you from joining the discussion!

    What we're about

    Calling all personal development lovers! Join us once a month to review and discuss a thought-provoking book while making new friends. We're always looking for insightful reads that blow our minds, expand our perspectives, or change our lives in a significant way. We look forward to seeing you!

    We also created a Facebook forum to share articles/books, meetups/groups, and local events related to personal development and conscious living. We would love to connect personal growth seekers of all kinds in the area!

    Where do you go to get inspired? What classes are you taking? What podcasts are changing your life? If you have any suggestions but prefer not to join the Facebook group, please feel free to message us on Meetup and I'll pass them along.
