At the basis of all healing and transformation is a person being deeply heard by another. It is through being heard that we gain insight, understanding, empathy, and compassion and renewed internal resources to better navigate our own needs and the feelings and needs of others.

In this three day exploration of Compassionate, Nonviolent Communication, a model developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg PhD and based on the work of Carl Rogers, we will experience first hand the profound impact of being completely and empathically present to others and ourselves and how to integrate empathic listening (including somatic-based empathy) in our healing work. 

In this program, learn how to:

  • Help your clients re-connect when shut down, stuck, or “looping”
  • Listen to your clients in a way that opens up healing, possibility and transformation
  • Empower others to discover and draw on their own internal resources
  • Support clients in hearing what really matters to them underneath judgments, self sabotage, demands, anxiety, anger, shame, and blame
  • Work more effectively and comprehensively with empathy and compassion, including through Somatic-Based Empathy (a practice developed by Dian Killian based on the NVC model)
  • Support clients in more powerfully meeting their needs
  • Increase self-connection, mind-body awareness, and self-empathy for clients and yourself

Who is this program for?

Therapists, coaches, counselors, teachers, therapists and counselors in training or anyone who wants a powerful set of practices and tools to deepen and enhance how you support others and yourself.
