November 8-10, 2013 Friday through Sunday (2 nights)
Drawing on the work of psychologist Marshall B. Rosenberg and universal spiritual precepts, learn and practice skills to help you:
- Create and sustain fulfilling relationships;
- Remain open to others in response to painful judgments and criticisms;
- Express yourself clearly so that you are most likely to be heard;
- Listen more attentively to others to get at their underlying needs;
- Meet with compassion people whose actions seem unjust or oppressive; and
- Empathize with others and not judge yourself.
“Great exercises, calm, centered leadership, and inspiring content.”
“I have read Rosenberg’s book. This was way fuller and worked at the heart level rather than the head level. Some of the exercises were especially powerful.”
I learned that “NVC is about how I communicate with myself as well as others.”
I learned how “using words of NVC can make a difference for my current and future relationships.”
