Do you believe in the power of empathetic connection?

Would you like to learn skills you can start practicing in your life immediately?

Are you curious about Nonviolent Communication?

This 2-hour workshop offers an overview of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a communication tool for cultivating empathy and understanding for self and others. The workshop includes an introduction to the four elements of NVC (observation, feelings, needs, and requests) and an opportunity for participants to practice applying NVC to their own lives. Particular emphasis will be on identifying feelings and needs, which are at the heart of NVC and key to understanding oneself and others.

In this workshop participants will:

·         Learn the basic structure and philosophy of Nonviolent Communication

·         Increase self-awareness and understanding, particularly in conflict situations

·         Increase awareness and capacity for understanding perspectives of others, particularly in conflict situations

·         Leave with communication tools that can be practiced immediately

This or another Introduction to NVC is a prerequisite for Nonviolent Communication: Skill-building.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Oxybaric and costs $30.
