Never again will you believe that a person is too hard to work with, a decision too complicated to make, or a conversation too difficult to have. ~ S. McCormick
This course is essential if you are interested in:
* Communicating clearly and effectively
* Building stronger relationships with others (and with yourself!)
* Initiating and navigating even difficult conversations
This will be a 5-week (15 hour) study series. Through a combination of engaging group discussions and practice time, you gain an understanding of the basic principles of NVC. These skills are useful at work, at school, with your family, in line at the grocery store, and anywhere else that you interact with people! Space limited to 16 people.
PLEASE BE SURE TO REGISTER AHEAD: Call Meganwind Eoyang at 707-775-7178 with your name, phone/s, email and date of class, and to pay for the class . Directions and what to bring will be sent about a week before the series begins.
COST: Regular tuition $600; Scholarship rate $400.00. You can make payment by phone with Meganwind.
LOCATION: Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists offices, Fireside room (behind the church on the corner), 1606 Bonita, Berkeley (near Cedar).
If you are new to NVC, you may want to start reading Marshall Rosenberg’s book, Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life before the class begins:
Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg
Nonviolent Communication Companion Workbook by Lucy Leu (if you like to learn by writing)
Please order these books through CNVC.org or Amazon.com or check your local library
Meganwind Eoyang came to the study of Nonviolent Communication from a very different world. She grew up street fighting on the south side of Chicago. Her longing for sweet, deep connection with fellow humans arose after first finding safety and meaning in nature. She was excited to discover that Nonviolent Communication offers clear steps for practicing the compassion, self love, and love for others which her Chinese, European and North American (and other) spiritual traditions invite us to live. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
