Feeling frustrated about the stress that is present in your life and in your relationships?
Then consider the following: the way you speak – and how you hear others – significantly impacts the joy and stress you experience in each of your relationships.
If you are ready to get beyond the emotional triggers that goad you into responding in counterproductive ways – or if you would simply like to see an increase in the harmony you experience at home or at work, this course may be the perfect fit.
In eight evenings you will be given practical tools designed to help you:
- Move beyond anger, blame and judgment…
- Make sense of the baffling or offensive people in your life…
- Deepen your compassion for yourself and others… and
- Transform your old thought and speaking patterns into new ones that inspire harmony and fun!
Together we will cover the basics of the Nonviolent Communication process, including Self Empathy (compassion for yourself), Empathy (compassion for others), and Speaking Your Truth (even when it's difficult to ask for what you really want).
