Fundamentals of Compassionate Communication

Do you want to learn practical skills for creating more authenticity and ease in your relationships? To be able to look beyond challenging behaviours and connect with the humanity in each of us? To cultivate a calm, joyful center from which to live life??

All from the ease and convenience of your own home!

This 3-session interactive online workshop provides you with the fundamentals of Compassionate Communication (Nonviolent Communication or NVC). Together we explore the core principles and 4 -part model of NVC with interactive activities allowing plenty of opportunity for practice and support to integrate your new skills. The virtual workshop is appropriate for those who are new to Nonviolent Communication or for those with experience who seek a fresh perspective and the opportunity to practice. You will learn and practice essential techniques for self-connection, empathy for self and others and invaluable communication tools that will benefit you at home, in your workplace and communities.

Online Format

We will use the Zoom Video Conference platform which provides easy-to-use tools to see and hear each other, watch visual presentations, and break into private paired and small group conversations. Accessible from your computer, tablet or smartphone, Zoom meetings are easy to join. We ask that you use a video-capable device so you can participate fully in the Zoom features. The group size is limited to 12 people to ensure adequate time for sharing and connection which is especially important with the online format.

It is important that you can attend all three sessions as the material builds from session to session.
