Location Details:

Trust is the foundation of human relationships, and energetic transparent Truth or Honesty is the foundation of Trust between people. (Including Love Relationships, Parent/Child, Employer/Employee etc.) But how to access and compassionately deliver that Naked Truth?
And when the truth triggers hurt or anger, how do we stay present, give empathy and consciously respond to the other’s reaction?

We will use NVC/Compassionate Communication, transparency technologies/exercises, The Sacred Matrix, and more to heal old hurts, empower and develop new skills for delivering and receiving Total Truth from each other.
If you feel flat or stuck or not productive in any of your relationships it is almost certain it is because you have not gotten to the DEEP TRUTH between you all yet.
A wise guy from the middle east said: The Truth WILL set you free. And it will! Someone else said: Truth is also the greatest aphrodisiac
We will learn:
• How to get to the deep liberating truth in your real life relationship.
• How to create your own Transparency Tribe, because it takes a village to raise a relationship.
• About - Into Me See – Intimacy thru honestyLearn this powerful and simple process that gives a foundation for clear and compassionate communication; understand old habits of mind which create distress (dis-ease); and create new habits of mind that create compassion, connection, and healing within our selves. We will learn to respond with communication based on true power and compassion, instead of reacting from defensiveness, fear or powerlessness. We will use our own life experiences for application and integration of the NVC principles. The classes include didactic and experiential learning processes in an atmosphere of inclusion, connection, fun, acceptance, and empathy.

NVC Santa Cruz trainer Kelly Bryson, MFT, is a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication since 1991.
