CNVC PRACTICE SERIES SESSION #1 ~ SELF COMPASSION ~
We Must first have compassion for ourselves before we are able to have compassion for anyone else. This workshop presents tools and strategies that will be practiced in small groups to develop compassion for ourselves and will teach us how to be aware of self-judgment, as well as recognize our feelings and needs. These skills enable us to carve the path towards self-forgiveness instead of moving towards guilt, shame, anger, or depression.
Everyone is welcome! This workshop is for all levels of experience with NVC, including those with no experience.
Compassionate Nonviolent Communication (CNVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg, is a powerful tool for transforming and mediating interpersonal, intra-personal, organizational, and inter-group conflicts. It is used worldwide by activists, teachers, conflict specialists, doctors, diplomats, social workers, managers, and others to improve their work and home life. The practice of NVC can help us understand ourselves more fully, provide us with a sense of power and choice in our lives, and open our hearts to compassionately connect and collaborate with others.
