Communicate with others in ways that increase understanding, compassion and joyful giving. Immerse yourself in the practice of holding everyone’s needs dear while still fully expressing and living your own values. Connect with yourself and others in times of conflict, and improve relationships with important people in your life. We’ll cover the fundamentals of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), work developed by Marshall Rosenberg, through large and small group discussions, role plays and other activities.
For those with little or no prior NVC training AND for those with some knowledge of NVC who want to immerse themselves in the principles of the model and increase their skill level. It is helpful if you have attended an introductory evening or read the first eight chapters of Marshall Rosenberg s book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Compassion, prior to the weekend. Registration limited to 12 people max.

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. She was excited to discover that Nonviolent Communication offers clear steps for practicing the compassion, self love, and love for others which most spiritual traditions invite us to live. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
