Compassionate Communication: Skills and Awareness for Life in Relationship
Mar 17-18, 2018
A workshop with Stephen Michael Tumolo and Geraldine Scott
Based on the seminal work of Marshall Rosenberg, this two-day workshop will provide participants with a basic grounding in the theory and practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). NVC offers a way of approaching the basic flow of life: expressing and receiving. Its root is compassion and understanding for ourselves and others. During the weekend, we will exercise our ability to notice what we are feeling, identify needs in a situation, communicate our needs clearly, make requests, and learn to elicit compassionately the needs of others. Skillful listening to ourselves and others invite us to greater self-awareness and self-compassion, and a growing ability to live compassionately in all our relationships.
