Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating that strengthens our ability to stay in touch with our humanity and get our needs met, even under difficult circumstances. Instead of habitual responses, our words become conscious responses based on a clear awareness of what we are observing, feeling, and wanting. We are led to express ourselves with honesty and clarity, while paying respectful and empathic attention to others.

We’ll explore shifting the sometimes awkward and dorky classical NVC into language that can be more easily heard by our listener, that fits their culture. In this interactive workshop, we dig for our deeper intentions as we offer up “more natural” ways to express what’s alive for us and land our empathy guesses.

 Led by NVC Santa Cruz Trainer Kristin Masters. Online registration available.

Also, we have other workshops listed in our Events Calendar.
