Silicon Valley NVC - Nonviolent Communication

San Jose, CA

Silicon Valley NVC - Nonviolent Communication

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.

iNaturalist Happy Hour SF East Bay

Oakland, CA

iNaturalist Happy Hour SF East Bay

Grab a drink with iNaturalist folks in the Bay Area and put faces to usernames! If you like adult beverages and the idea of meeting some of your fellow local iNat users doesn't fill you with dread, this is the event for you. If the idea *does* fill you with dread or a deep and abiding sense of not caring, that's cool too! We'll see you online. Never heard of iNat? Check it out!

We (the iNat staff who work in the Bay Area) are hoping to do this monthly, alternating between SF (near the California Academy of Sciences) and Oakland. Locations will probably vary, maybe the date too, so watch this space.

You don't have to sign up for a Meetup account to keep track of our events! Meetup publishes an iCal / Google Calendar feed you can integrate into your calendar. There are also RSS, Atom, and Outlook feeds linked at the bottom of the Meetup calendar.
