Would you like to deal with conflict more skillfully? Be sensitive to others without giving up your own needs? Deepen intimacy and have more ease within relationships?

The goal of this professional development training is to explore a way of thinking, acting and speaking that builds connection even during times of stress and conflict. The practical approach of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) assists us in thinking toward sustainable authentic community where everyone matters. Participants will learn and explore new skills for using conflict as an opportunity to strengthen connection to others.

This interactive workshop will provide direct experience of empathic listening and empathic problem-solving. We have direct experiences of caring deeply for our authentic self at the same time as caring for the authentic other. These skills have the potential to increase harmony and cooperation within our families, workplace and the larger community.

You will leave this workshop with practical concepts and skills you can put to immediate use.

This workshop runs from 9 - 11:30 AM on July 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th.
