Pendle Hill: Compassionate Communication: Life in Relationship

Saturday, March 2, 2019 - 09:30 to Sunday, March 3, 2019 - 16:00

Based on the seminal work of Marshall Rosenberg, this two-day workshop provides participants with a grounding in an embodied, spirit-led practice of Nonviolent Communication. We will explore communication, expressing and receiving, as the basic flow of life. Rooted in this understanding of all communication as life expressing and receiving itself, compassion for ourselves and others grows.


One goal for the weekend is to grow our capacities to be powerful speakers of our truth and powerful listeners to the voices of others. We will nurture our abilities to be an empathetic presence in the world, becoming more able to identify our own heart’s desires, or needs, and those of others. The skills we’ll practice are central to all relationships and urgent in times like these.
