Next Meetup

Love Talk
Come and explore how to get your heart understood by others, and how to hear others' hearts as well. This meetup is based on the ideas listed in the book "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life" by Marshall B. Rosenberg. Topics regularly talked about are- the importance of human needs, what's in a feeling?, appreciation vs praise, hearing others, asking for what we want, the power of the eyes (observation), and keeping inner peace. * PLEASE RSVP * (And update if your plans change.) Look for the sign with our group name on it. We might also be upstairs. Donations are optional and welcome. (It costs time and money to organize meetups.) Hope to see you there. :)

What we're about

95.1% based on the book "Nonviolent Communication - A Language of Life" by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. We playfully explore communication to grow in:

- Knowing ourselves and others. We learn to understand our values, needs, and feelings.

- Being real. Often times we might really want to say something, but don't know how to say it in a way that others will be okay with. Compassionate Communication helps to give suggestions on how to connect with other people, while not giving up ourselves.

- Getting our needs met. Some people ignore their needs. Other people blast right through everyone. Still others ask people to stop doing stuff, instead of asking people for what they DO want. Compassionate Communication helps people to ask for things so they get more yes's, while helping others to get yes's too.

- Cracking the tough nuts. Not just people, but also our understandings of anger, praise, love, responsibility, judgment, and more.

- Enjoying life. Compassionate Communication helps us to enjoy ourselves and others more.

(Compassionate Communication is the non-copyrighted name of Nonviolent Communication.)
