Nonviolent Communication for Activists: Embody the Peace and Sustainability You Value

As someone who values social change, you want to see a world of peace, environmental sustainability, and care for all.

You probably already value nonviolence and compassion, and. . . perhaps some of this fits?
- You sometimes feel very un-peaceful inside when advocating for peace in the world?
- You see people with other viewpoints as “other” and have a hard time relating to them?
- You are weary and want to find a way to stay inspired?
- You want to be both a loving and powerful agent of change?

Nonviolent Communication (NVC, developed by Marshall Rosenberg) can help you connect with what really matters, dialogue with people who disagree, access energy to fuel your social change work, and embody your values even more deeply. We will explore how to be both real and
compassionate, stay focused on what you want, and come from the heart. This will be an introduction; no previous NVC experience required; those who have it will benefit from more tools and integration. We warmly welcome all!

Cost: Koha

Please register your interest as a minimum number of participants is required to proceed with the workshop.
