About this Event

We're holding registration open until March 9th at 7pm, so you can still register if you missed the first class. You'll be able to catch up on what you missed by using our online classroom.

This is a 4-week online course. Live class times/dates: 7pm to 9pm on Tuesdays, Mar. 2, 9, 16, 23, 2021. Recordings of live classes will be viewable in the online classroom, which will remain accessible at least until Nov 5th, 2021. 

(If these live sessions dates/times do not work for you, but you'd still like to participate in the course, you can sign up for the Self-Paced version instead.)

Sliding Scale pricing $340 - $170 per person for the series (plus Eventbrite admin fee). The sliding scale pricing means we'd love to receive $340 per person for the series, since this price is chosen to support the sustainability of the Communication Dojo. However, we also want to be able to welcome those for whom the $340 price is not affordable, so we're making a range of ticket prices available. If money is an issue please contact us at info@communicationdojo.com

Empowered Self-Expression - Speaking from the Heart

Frequently, the more important something is to us, the more we speak in ways that make it difficult for the other person to hear us!

Our hope is that our words will lead to us being understood. If only the other person really understood us, then things would work out more easily. We’d have a stronger relationship and contribute positively to each other’s lives. This would be an empowering experience for us both.

Instead, we can repeatedly find ourselves in what seems like a battle to be heard. Circular arguments and fights can sap our energy and rob our brains of their incredible creative problem-solving and conflict-resolving abilities.

During this 4-week series we’ll explore what it means to express ourselves from a place of empowerment, and what it means to speak “from the heart.”

Rather than trying to “say everything right,” we’ll practice instead expressing ourselves sincerely from the heart, then responding, from the heart, to whatever comes back from the other person.

We’ll also give attention to the “classical” Nonviolent Communication elements of self-expression: observations, feelings, needs and requests.

The Communication Dojo 

The Communication Dojo is a learning environment designed for everyone, regardless of prior experience with "Connected Communication" (aka "Nonviolent Communication" (NVC)). This four week committed series format allows you opportunities to practice what you're learning between classes then to come back the next week with questions. You'll build skills, knowledge, and community week by week. 

As soon as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others will weaken and defeat you.— Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

The Communication Dojo approach is inspired in part by teaching from martial arts. This is not a lecture series. The teaching is highly interactive and there will be plenty of experiential learning in pairs and/or small groups - “learning by doing.”
