- Stephanie Elliott

You’re caring, compassionate, and only want whats best for everyone and yet..,

Sometimes you are ready to rip your hair out.

When conflict erupts with a partner or loved one it can be not only frustrating but confusing.

Communication challenges are often the cause of breakups/divorce, distancing from a loved ones, as well as trouble sleeping, difficulties succeeding at work, and even a lower immune system.

Fortunately, it is possible to quickly heal the pain and confusion that arise between you, your partner, and loved ones.

Through learning Compassionate Communication, thousands across the world have changed their unhelpful communication patterns, reignited their struggling relationships, reconnected with estranged family members, and started living a more empowered, peaceful, healthy, and loving life.

In this 3 hour introductory workshop you will learn:

---- 3 common behaviors that lead to unnecessary hurt and conflict and what to do instead.

---- How to reconnect when you find yourself feeling distant and separate.

---- Why you often make things worse when someone you love is hurting, and how to truly help.

---- How to experience more love, trust, and intimacy.

Through experiential exercises and live demonstrations, this free workshop will teach you the basics of Compassionate Communication and how it can be used to heal the pain that arises between you and those you love.

Are you ready for deeper and more satisfying relationships?

Jonah Richman’s Compassionate Communication workshops have changed the lives of hundred of people and have been instrumental in healing relationships and empowering individuals. Before Jonah found Compassionate Communication, he was in the midst of depression following a breakup. He was introduced to Compassionate Communication and quickly discovered that the root of his pain and relationship struggles was due to the way he handled conflict. After his life and relationships drastically improved from implementing Compassionate Communication, he knew he had to share it with others.

Jonah is a certified counselor through the Interchange Counseling Institute and offers business consulting to holistic practitioners and coaches, helping them to lead workshops. He integrates Compassionate Communication into everything he does.
