Compassionate Communication
The Language of the Heart
AKA  GIRAFFE LANGUAGE

“THE COMPASSION OR LACK OF COMPASSION THAT WE SEND OUT INTO THE WORLD IS USUALLY REFLECTED BACK TO US.  WHEN WE SPEAK “GIRAFFE LANGUAGE,” WE SEE THINGS, LIKE A GIRAFFE, FROM A HIGHER PERSPECTIVE, WITH OUR BIG HEARTS FULL OF LOVE AND COMPASSION.”

                                                          – LaVetta Westphal-Rolfs

Whether we are having communication challenges in our family, at work, with our toddlers or our teens, we know how it feels to experience feelings of frustration, overwhelm, anxiety and stress.  We often wish to experience more joy, connection, and ease in our day to day lives.  At points in our lives, we find ourselves experiencing a death, or a relationship change, and then find ourselves hurt, confused, angry, or grieving. Suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of a new set of circumstances seemingly beyond our control.  Whether it is the loss of a spouse, parent, child, grandparent, sibling, family member or friend, we are often at a loss as to how to communicate with each other as we attempt to continue daily interactions and while deeply grieving.
