What we're about

"Love is the absence of judgment." - Dalai Lama

"All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience." - Herry Miller

I welcome you who wants to learn, practice and embody the gifts of Mindfulness Practice, Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Authentic Relating, and other healing/spiritual practices to come home to a loving family where you feel safe, relaxed and empowered to open up, share, grow and expand together with one another.

The intentions:

• Awaken life from within.

• Embrace our pure, raw and full humanity with unconditional acceptance.

• Cultivate true compassion that goes beyond the idea of giving and receiving.

• Walk a path of radical liberation by consciously choosing how to respond to whatever shows up in life.

We gather to practice:

• Genuine kindness, curiosity, and authenticity in our presence

• What awakens and enlivens the life force in you as well as in others

• Internal connection with one's self and external connection with others

• Self-care and caring for the whole

• Individual growth and community growth


If you are new to NVC, I strongly recommend reading the book "Nonviolent Communication" by Marshall Rosenberg before attending our meetings. Some familiarity with mindfulness practice would be helpful too.

Two small and important requests:

• Please always RSVP ahead of time so I can prepare my space and working materials accordingly.

• Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early or on time so we can start our opening circle with everyone's presence.

Look forward to connecting with you soon!

May your heart be at home with compassion,

Qibei Sylvia Steiner
