Come to a three-part series organized by the Connection Action Project to provide deep listening spaces for women in community. The CAP's flagship program is the Empathic Listening Post project. Here we are offering a free workshop for women only to learn and practice the tools of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in a private, participatory context.

Each workshop will include a time for introductions, art making, deep listening practice, and sharing of our experiences, feelings, needs and action plans. We ask that you plan to attend at least two of the three sessions in order to build and nurture our ongoing relationships. Register now -- space is limited. ++++

Series title: Women, Sex, Power & Social Action

Sundays, Feb. 3, Feb. 17 and March 3 @2:00-4:30 pm

Workshop I: Conscious Embodiment

By healing ourselves into compassionate wholeness, we grow beyond old fragmenting strategies: (submissiveness, dependency and objectifying of our bodies), grounding ourselves in life affirming action

Workshop II: Midwifing Change.

Our female wisdom presence amidst transitions of birth, growth, death, healing and consciousness, can help us to move through the challenges of our industrialized culture. Do we feel grief about these changes? What is the connection of our personal transition and choices about child bearing, and the planet's transition with climate change, etc.?

Workshop III: Sexual Synergy.

Claiming our sexual energy can support us in a new integration of body, soul and spirit. How can practices like Tai Chi, social activism, and empathic listening inform our sexual presence?

Please join us!

Location: At a private home in Berkeley: Exact location will be sent to you upon registration.

Registration is free. Cost on a self-determined donation basis. Space is limited. Please register by midnight, Saturday, Feb. 2.
