A Taste of Collaborative Communication

Sat, 05/18/2013 - 1:30pm - 4:30pm

Collaborative Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication or NVC) offers powerful tools and perspectives to support:

Relating to Life When it's Not Yet the Way You Want It to Be

Mon, 07/16/2012 - 11:15pm - Tue, 07/17/2012 - 1:15am

Reducing suffering and increasing happiness is arguably at the core of what human beings are trying to achieve in everything they do. Yet, there are fundamental insights into where suffering comes from and how we can move beyond it that are not widely appreciated.

Self-Empowerment When The Going Gets Tough

Mon, 07/09/2012 - 11:15pm - Tue, 07/10/2012 - 1:15am

Communication skills typically fail when they're most needed when people get emotionally hijacked. Becoming more skillful with regard to intense emotions being triggered is a key to navigating relationships.

Relating with Mutuality and Clarity

Mon, 07/02/2012 - 11:15pm - Tue, 07/03/2012 - 1:15am

Most of us long for our relationships to be closer, but it's hard to build consistently strong relationships without getting good at honoring mutuality. This teaches skills for implementing mutuality, as well as offering core skills for navigating difficult conversations.

Expressing and Hearing What's Important, without Judgment

Mon, 06/18/2012 - 11:15pm - Tue, 06/19/2012 - 1:15am

People often fall into patterns of being aggressive, passive-aggressive, or passive, but lack the skills to be assertive about strongly held values without alienating. Expressing what matters without alienating is a core skill for cultivating authentic relationships.

Compassionate Listening to Self and Others

Mon, 06/11/2012 - 11:15pm - Tue, 06/12/2012 - 1:15am

Listening is a fundamental communication skill, as is developing self-awareness. This approach to listening and self-awareness offers a more satisfying way of supporting others than what we typically employ, or a more effective way of making sense of what is going on for a person we are in dialog with. When we apply it to ourselves, it helps us get clearer, more grounded, and more aware of what we really want.
