On the 3rd Wednesday of each month in 2019, you can expect an excellent mini-workshop with a unique focus and a practice group, each taught by someone uniquely skilled. You will be provided handouts to support new concepts and learning, and we recommend you bring a notepad and pen. We often engage in role plays, and you are free and safe to participate as little or as much as you'd like.

The format for these two hours is: Overview & Check-in, Empathy Exchange, New Learning, Skills Practice, Feedback, Closing

You are welcome just as you are, and if you'd like to learn a little prior to joining an event check out these tools

Attending To Needs With Care Vs. Meeting Needs

Attending to needs with care is different than actually meeting needs.

Often times, for very fine reasons, we can't meet the needs of ourselves or others. To have more ease and acceptance in those moments we can **attend to needs with care** instead.

Join us to learn what this looks like, how it sounds, and what it takes.

Whether it's to compassionately hold our shortcomings or to give ourselves permission to say no, we can learn to gracefully acknowledge another person without being called away from our center.

We can learn to warmly say I see you, I hear you, I care about you, and I am lovingly choosing something else.

Because truth is calling. Because choice matters. Because you deserve genuine self-care as much as others deserve kindness.

Join us for an artful lesson and key differentiation of Nonviolent Communication.
