Free Introduction to NVC

Do you long for connection and an experience of belonging, and instead feel confused, hurt and sometimes angry when even your best efforts to connect seem to repeatedly fail? Are you hoping for skills and understanding that can transform your experience?

During our Free Introduction to NVC (also known as Compassionate Communication) we will explore and learn to:

  • understand how our efforts to connect can be affected by unconscious perceptions of danger that can keep us separate, and how to regain calm and ease
  • engage others in a way that creates peaceful, satisfying connections especially when they are reacting
  • identify and address the old wounds that send us down the same road time after time, in a way that creates peace and transformation
  • experience our true selves, able to address our reactions, confident, present, satisfied, and connected

We look forward to meeting you and exploring together what brings us all joy, peaceful and cooperative relationships.
