How do you respond to difficult people and challenging conversations? The Nonviolent Communication for Better Living 3-day workshop at the Art of Living Retreat center taking place August 11-13, 2017 offers tools for creating mutual understanding, trust, intimacy, and meaning in your relationships.
Register online here today! Only $495 includes tuition, room and board.
The retreat is based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, and is led by Dian Killian who co-taught with Rosenberg and has herself written two popular Nonviolent Communication (NVC) books. NVC will help you transform how you relate to others – by practicing self-empathy, connecting to the needs of others, and asking for what you want. You will develop a greater self-connection and connection with others.
Whether you are new to NVC or wish to deepen your practice, you’ll learn practical skills, including how to:
- Stay self-connected during challenging conversations
- Listen to yourself and others, even when triggered
- Discern what matters to you on a core level
- Create strategies that work for everyone
- Speak from your heart with honesty and connection
