Mindful communication is NOT about being “"nice."
It’s about navigating our communication snafus and relationship struggles with even more honesty, wisdom, and heart.
What you’ll find this Saturday:
- Safe, supportive space in which to show up as we are, and be allies to one another’s growth and healing
- Support for relationship challenges – whether with intimate partners, friends, or family
- More self-compassion, and permission for all your inner voices to be heard and integrated into a more coherent whole
- “Hands-on” communication tools to cultivate more honesty, connectedness, and meaning in all your relationships
Based upon the work on Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, and Nonviolent Communication, in this group, we will:
- Gain clarity about the role of universal needs in our everyday thoughts, words, and actions
- Create a safe space in which to explore the needs which underlie our experience of conflict
- Cultivate our capacity for empathy – with ourselves, one another, and – via role plays – with others in our lives with whom we find it difficult (or even impossible) to connect
- Practice the art of listening so as to hear the heart beneath others’ judgments, evaluations, and diagnoses
- Strengthen our capacity for clear and compassionate conflict resolution
This practice offers a deepening sense of self-love, and an invitation to step into greater authenticity and intimacy in all your relationships.
It’s not about being “nice,” fake, or walking on eggshells; rather, it’s about learning to show up fully, in your truth, and with compassion.
