Silicon Valley NVC - Nonviolent Communication

San Jose, CA

The purpose of the group is to learn and practice communicating compassionately through Nonviolent Communication (NVC). People with an interest in improving their communication skills in all contexts would benefit from this group (relationships, parenting, leadership, coaching, organizations, etc).

NVC is a non-judgmental paradigm of relating that includes introspection, deep listening with empathy, and honest expression. NVC was started by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD in the 1960s, and has been used throughout the world as a tool for conflict resolution, community building and peace. For more information on NVC, please go to the Center for Nonviolent Communication at <a></a>

When joining this group, please include a picture that clearly shows your face. Business, business casual, or casual clothing required at all times. <br>

About the "Giraffes" - the giraffe is used within the NVC community as a living metaphor for NVC consciousness because of its long neck for great visibility and hearing, for its ability to eat thorns for nutrition, and for its very large heart.

Upgrade Your Communication and Relationships

Sacramento, CA

This is a group to help you improve your communication and relationships with people. It is amazing how much problems can exist between spouses, between parents and children, and how much stress can exist between bosses and workers. If you think about it, a huge portion of your problems are about relationships. It is fair to say that if you improve your relationships, you can improve your whole life.

In fact, if we enlarge the scope of our views, we can see that the entire planet is suffering from "international relations". Wars, you might say, are when relationships have gone really bad between nations.

If relationships is such an important and hard subject, how come there is virtually no formal education available for it? So, where do we learn about relationships? Shall we rely on parents to teach relationships? How many parents are relationships experts?

That's what this group is about.

We will have meetings to learn tools about how to improve your communication skills and relationships skills.

We will cover topics such as
- How to communicate with self-confidence
- How to avoid conflicts and stress between people
- How to improve love, trust, and understanding between people
- How to make more friends
- How to start a romantic relationship
- How to maintain and improve familial relationships
- How to improve professional communication
- How to communicate to a group of people effectively (public speaking)

During the COVID-19 lockdown, we'll meet online. When the lockdown is lifted, we will meet in person.

Please join this group and RSVP for an upcoming meeting right away!

Please call the group organizer, Tony, at 916-519-5287 for any questions.

This group is sponsored by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center.
