Non-Violent (Compassionate) Communication


Non-Violent (Compassionate) Communication.

Sunday, 27th October, 10am - 4pm. Only $100, payment by phone - (02) 4759 3478 - or in store today. Or register your interest online and one of our friendly staff will be in touch to finalise your reservation.

In this, practical, experiential workshop you’ll learn the foundations of Non-Violent Communication (NVC). NVC is a way of communicating (and more accurately a way of being) that moves beyond blame, shame, judgment and guilt, and more towards empathy and understanding for yourself and others. It has applications and value in all relational situations and in any kind of conflict, even when others are not using NVC in their communication. You can read more about NVC here-

What to expect:

In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn and practice the basic elements of NVC through verbal and visual teaching, stories, small and large group practices and games, group brainstorming, role playing, journalling, Q&A and safe and confidential sharing and reflection space.

You’ll leave with printed resources and practical tools to remind you of what you learnt and to help you continue practicing it in all areas of your life.

The workshop will run from 10am ‘til 4pm with a one hour lunch break from 12:30-1:30pm.
