Healthy relationships are one of the cornerstones of a peaceful life, and the foundation of these relationships lies in clear, effective, and compassionate communication. The good news is that these skills can be learned. By identifying what we are perceiving, feeling, and wanting, we can express ourselves with honesty and clarity, while simultaneously respecting others' needs and feelings.
This 6 week course will focus on interpersonal communication within different contexts (family, friends, and co-workers) and also on the internal dialogues we might have with ourselves. The weekly classes will help you develop listening skills, learn to make clear and specific requests, and express feelings in a way that won't imply judgment, criticism, blame, or punishment. Those who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection, and resolution to conflicts. NVC trainer Christine King will facilitate this highly interactive course designed to support you in having more peaceful harmonious relationships with yourself and others.
