Dancing in the Gap of Uncertainty: Monthly Workshops and Telecourses
Hosted by Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, a nonprofit educational organization.
Nonviolent Communication has been described as a language of compassion, as a tool for positive social change, and as a spiritual practice. Its basic premise is that underlying all human actions are needs that people are seeking to meet, and that understanding and acknowledging these needs can create a shared basis for connection, cooperation, and more globally -- peace.
Bay Area Nonviolent Communication would like to invite you to participate in any of our upcoming "Dancing in the Gap of Uncertainty: Embracing Discomfort as a Path to True Freedom" workshops or telecourses which begin soon!
1. Do you want to increase your ability to embrace fully who you are and reach for life without attachment?
2. Would you like to expand your capacity to face and transform inner obstacles so you can have more choice?
3. Are you hoping you could keep your heart open to yourself and others more of the time?
4. Do you long to gain awareness of your inner experience and beliefs, and have the freedom to make choices that serve your deepest aspirations?
These workshops and telecourses are led by Miki Kashtan of Bay Area Nonviolent Communication. Miki has been supporting the national and global movements to create governmental ministries and departments of peace, including facilitation of a global summit in Japan and a regional summit in Africa. She has several articles in print in publications such as Tikkun and Encounter magazines. Miki holds a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Berkeley.
"Miki's leadership inspires, startles, thrills and challenges my growing edge. It meets my needs for hope, fresh possibilities, and change in the smallest part of my heart and in the world at large." --Melody Stewart, Santa Rosa, CA
A break for lunch will be provided; a Whole Foods Market and Deli is across the street from the workshop location.
