Speaking Peace: What you say next can change your world
Enriching life through compassionate communication
August 24 – 26 (Friday-Sunday)
The event starts at 7:00 pm on Friday and ends at Noon on Sunday.
With Wade Britzius
Tuition: $150, plus meals and lodging
In this workshop we will discover and practice the tools of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg Ph.D. These simple but powerful concepts and practices are supporting people around the world, on many different paths, from all different cultures, to live out the life they are seeking. NVC points to the thinking, and especially the language that can shift our attention and our intention toward the universal as we move through the ups and downs of daily life. From this place, no matter what our path, we have increased capability to actualize our spiritual understanding. Simply put, NVC helps us negotiate conflict and makes life more wonderful by supporting us to:
- Develop our capacity for deep listening to self and other
- Differentiate the simplicity of direct experience from the “story”
- Get in direct touch with the bodily energy of our feelings with less entanglement in the associated thoughts
- Realize and express the direct universal living energy of our needs or life force as it moves through us, and through others, moment by moment.
- Learn ways to directly ask for what we want by creating a quality of connection where everyone’s needs are heard and honored
