Compassionate Communication

The Language of the Heart

Whether we are having communication challenges with people who have different political points of view, day to day conflicts in our families, with toddlers or teens, or in our workplace with bosses and co-workers, we know how it feels to experience frustration, overwhelm, anxiety and stress. In this workshop participants will be introduced to a four-part model of Compassionate Communication, which is also known as NVC (Non-violent Communication) or Giraffe Language. This model provides a way of communicating that can be utilized for both EXPRESSING one’s feelings and needs, as well as LISTENING deeply to another’s feelings and needs.

Stay tuned for the dates and times of the next workshop.

Let us always think, pray and act,

not as Republicans or Democrats,

but as citizens committed to working

for the highest good of

our local communities,our nation and

our greater world community.
