Learn to use the techniques of nonviolent communication and practice speaking from the heart, without blame or judgment.
This style of communication, based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg, is often called "compassionate communication." Learn from real-life examples and role playing to share observations, feelings, needs and requests. Practice listening intuitively to each other to explore underlying universal needs and gain understanding of how to create win-win situations for all.
This group is led by Newt Bailey, founder of the Communication Dojo (http://www.communicationdojo.com) and a collaborative trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication (BayNVC). He has a private practice as a communication coach and trainer, mediator and facilitator, and he has taught NVC to prisoners and parolees.
