About this Event

Dates and Explanation of "Self-Paced" participation

Sliding Scale pricing US $280 - US $140 per person for a "Self-Paced" ticket (plus Eventbrite admin fee). The sliding scale pricing means we'd love to receive US $280 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 US $280 price is not affordable, so we make a range of ticket prices available. Please let us know if money is an obstacle at info@communicationdojo.com

What's included?

The "Self-paced" tickets on sale here are intended for those who will not be able to attend the live classes on Zoom, because of schedule or timezone conflicts, or because sales have ended places in for those live classes.

The "Self-paced" tickets on sale from this page give you access to the online classroom and daily email sequence of the 4-week "Empowered Self-Expression" workshop series happening in March 2021.

The "Self-paced" tickets do not give you access to the weekly, live, online classes on Zoom. See link above if you'd like to attend those live classes. 

Your access to our online classroom (details below) will start at or before 11:59am (PST), on Friday March 5th 2020. Online access will remain open until, at least, November 5th, 2021 at 11:59pm (PDT).

You will have access to the following learning resources:

  • Online classroom updated weekly, containing:
  • Daily email (optional opt-in) for the duration of the series with bonus material:

Other features of the Communication Dojo approach:

  • Same cohort of workshop participants for the whole series
  • Homework/Practice requests each week
  • Opportunity to contact other participants for practice and discussion during the 4-week series and beyond
  • Minimal reliance on “jargon” i.e. language that might be confusing or alienating for those not familiar with NVC.

Testimonial

"Nonviolent communication (or connected communication) has helped me and my partner speak in a much more conscious and effective way. It was a perfect transition and supplement to our prior couples therapy. It helps in every way, at work, with friends, with family, etc. I can't recommend these classes and Newt as a teacher enough. I wish we all had to take NVC classes in school, it would change the world." ~ Elise H., San Francisco

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. Most of the learning happens by taking part in experiential learning in pairs and/or small group discussions - “learning by doing.”
