A comprehensive exploration of the nonviolent communication work
and compassionate consciousness pioneered by Marshall Rosenberg PhD

When we transform the way we communicate, we transform our world:
Create empowering compassionate relationships with yourself and others.
Communicate clearly, effectively, and authentically.
Transform adversaries into allies.

This five week class provides a comprehensive overview of Nonviolent Communication, developed by Marshall Rosenberg. It covers all of the core components of NVC model.. Ideal for people new to NVC. Great for practitioners who want to deepen their existing NVC skills and consciousness. We invite you to join us as we explore this powerful communication technique. The class follows Marshall's seminal book Nonviolent Communication, A Language Of Life, and will focus on:

  • Making clear observations.
  • Honestly expressing feelings.
  • Deeply meeting needs.
  • Making doable requests.
  • The power of empathy and self empathy.
  • Working with anger.
  • Mourning.
  • Gratitude.

Each class will include kinesthetic activities and there will be time to practice applying the techniques to real-life situations.
