  How do you respond to difficult people and challenging conversations? You can create closer relationships by transforming judgment and blame into mutual understanding. Join us to find more trust, intimacy, and meaning in your relationships. Whether you’re new to Nonviolent Communication or want to deepen your practice, whether you come by yourself or with a partner, you can take a walk on the empathy labyrinth or use the dance floor process to enhance your relationships.
This program offers practical skills, including how to
Stay self-connected during challenging conversations
Choose from four ways of listening
Connect to your core aliveness
Transform habitual reactions into the language of compassion
Connect deeply to the needs of others
Speak from your heart.
Based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, this program helps you transform your relationships—including the most vital relationship of all, your relationship to yourself—by practicing self-empathy, freeing yourself of negative self-talk, and asking for what you want. Learn to share your observations, free of evaluations; your feelings, free of judgment; your needs, free of strategies; and your requests, free of demands.
