Creating Common Language: An Exploration for Moms and Middle-School Daughters

  • Red Tent Louisville 2720 Frankfort Avenue Louisville, KY, 40206 United States (map)

Are you a mom of a middle-school-aged daughter?

Do you ever feel like you and your daughter are speaking different languages?

Do you long to communicate with greater understanding of each other?

Creating Common Language is a gathering for mother and middle-school-aged daughter pairs to explore tools to create greater understanding and find common language for navigating the tricky times in their relationship.  

The gathering will include a short opening, a basic introduction to Marshall Rosenberg’s Compassionate Communication, a full-group practice, and a chance for mothers and daughters to practice with each other.  

Compassionate Communication is a tool developed by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD to cultivate connection and understanding of self and others. When we foster self-awareness and empathy, we are also able to approach others with greater understanding and empathy.

Compassionate Communication works from the framework that everything we say and do is an attempt to get our needs met, yet much of the time we don’t have a conscious awareness of what those needs are at a deep level. With connection always at the forefront, Compassionate Communication seeks to go beneath statements of fault and judgment of self or others to find the emotions and the underlying needs and values being expressed.

Creating Common Language will focus on building connection between mothers and daughters by digging beneath the messages that separate, create misunderstanding, and cause hurt.

This event is offered and facilitated by Cory Lockhart at Red Tent Louisville.

It will be offered in the future for mothers and high-school-aged daughters.

Investment for the pair is $60. Space is limited.
