Event Details

In this 2 hour workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Shift from judgments and self-judgment to empathy and compassion: feel good about yourself!
  • Channel your emotions in a productive way, rather than overreacting
  • How to communicate “negative” emotions and desires, in a way that leads to connection and understanding, instead of arguments

 


I always felt challenged when my loved ones were upset-whether at me or something unrelated. I’d either defend myself, leading to an argument, or I’d tell them they shouldn’t feel that way. I was critical of them and myself. Needless to say, that only led to disconnection and heartbreak, until I truly learned how to hold a compassionate and understanding place for my own and others’ emotions and desires.

One of the most transformative tools for me has been Nonviolent communication, developed by Marshall Rosenberg. Through this method, I discovered how to feel my feelings and desires, with compassion instead of an inner struggle. When this struggle lessened, so did the struggles in all my relationships.  Now I’m able to vulnerably feel and say what I want, in a way that creates more connection with my partner, instead of fighting. And I can listen to what he’s feeling, from a place of compassion, without taking it personally. Then together we co-create a way to get both people’s needs met harmoniously.

In this experiential evening, I’ll teach the basics of NVC Self Empathy and communication. We’ll begin to shift judgments of ourselves and others into compassion and understanding, and learn how to communicate in a way that leads to deeper intimacy and connection.
