Workshop: Nonviolent (NVC/Compassionate) Communication
February 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
“Conjugating Compassion in Everyday Life,” February 24, 9 a.m. – 12 noon in the sanctuary, a workshop with Genevieve Keller, based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg and on Thich Nhat Hanh’s belief that “Compassion is a verb.”
This workshop will cover the simple yet powerful steps of Compassionate Communication, also known as Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Activities will deepen your understanding of NVC, whether you are a newcomer or already have some knowledge of this practice.
– Deeply listening to yourself and others
– Appreciating your reactivity and what it is telling you
– Understanding the sacred values you operate from
– Discovering what motivates you and others
– Allowing compassion to transform your relationships
Compassionate Communication aligns squarely with our UU principles; it can be viewed as a spiritual practice ideally suited to living these principles every day.
