Taste of Non Violent Communication as part of One Billion Rising Weekend!
Thursday, February 14, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Dr. Cindy Bigbie, PhD (email@example.com) is proud to be a part of One Billion Rising, February 14, 2013 from 12-1, KLEMAN Plaza, Tallahassee. Additionally, she is offering the attendees of the Rising a no-cost mini-course on the Non-Violent Communication Solution to deepen the experience of this gathering.
This ‘taste of’ event offered in conjunction with the One Billion Rising event where ONE BILLION women and those who love them are invited to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. Be a part of this movement and take advantage of a no-cost way to become involved in NVC.
Come as you are, with an open mind!
Why? Because 1 in 3 women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. Unacceptable. The very heart of the problem can be addressed through a model based on Marshal Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication Model for speaking and for listening. With NVC we learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep listening—to ourselves as well as others—NVC helps us see our common humanity, using our power in a way that honors everyone’s needs, and a concrete set of skills which help us create life-serving families and communities.
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
· A global strike
· An invitation to dance
· A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
· An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
· A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
· A new time and a new way of being
