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.
