Compassionate Communication Practice Group - *Roger's Park*
Communicating with compassion and offering empathy to others isn't always so easy. I've found it's much easier when I practice on a regular basis. Please join me in practicing empathy and communication skills based on Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg and Nonviolent Communication Companion Workbook by Lucy Leu. My intention is to curate a brief introduction of a specific Nonviolent Communication concept each week, along with an exercise or two, so we can practice embodying that concept. I am NOT a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC). My intention is to facilitate a collaborative group of compassionate communication enthusiasts and allow the structure of the group to evolve based on what works for everyone involved. *Proposed Schedule* Tuesday, August 21 - Giving From The Heart Tuesday, August 28 - Communication That Blocks Compassion Tuesday, September 4 - Observing Without Evaluating Tuesday, September 11 - Identifying And Expressing Feelings Tuesday, September 18 - Taking Responsibility For Our Feelings Tuesday, September 25 - Requesting That Which Would Enrich Life It is important to me that this group feels accessible to all, regardless of schedule, income, education, etc. I am not requesting commitment of attending all 6 meetings, though I would be delighted if people wanted to! This even will be free of charge. I will accept donations for the time and energy to facilitate these meetings. I will give 50% of any donations to CNVC to help them further their mission. If you are new to Nonviolent Communication, I would love to set up a 15 minute call to catch you up to speed and offer resources. My intention is to make the group as much on the same page as possible, considering every member's various familiarity with these concepts!

What we're about

Please join us to learn and practice Nonviolent Communication in the Chicago Metro area.

This Meet Up group will promote workshops, retreats and practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as taught by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph D. We will promote events led by Certified Trainers of NVC and candidates in the certification program of the Center for Nonviolent Communication. In addition, we will consider requests from others with NVC training as well.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a model developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the late 1960s. Dr. Rosenberg was motivated to help people connect with their own humanity and that of others respectfully, compassionately, peacefully and with joy. NVC offers a practical and unique model to empower and transform relationships. It is inspirational in its invitation to cherish the needs of others as our own. We predict it will offer challenge and satisfaction to all who wish to embrace life more fully.
