Compassionate Connections

For Personal, Family, and Community Peace, Understanding, and Joyful Growth

 

Weekly Community Practice Group

Wednesdays 7-9 PM

 

Free for everyone in our New River Valley Community who wishes to learn a language for powerful, honest, compassionate living

 

Every day, all around us we are bombarded with violent language -- thoughts and words of anger, hate, judgment, ridicule, and blame -- that often leads to violent action.

 

But imagine instead:

·        Listening and speaking honestly without judging

·        Acknowledging mistakes without blame or shame

·        Changing anger into compassionate understanding

·        Hearing and saying “no” without anger or guilt

·        Transforming conflicts into cooperative agreements

·        Achieving goals using “power with” rather than “power over”

 

Our practice group

·        is peace-filled but not religion or faith based

·        is grounded in the work of Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. www.cnvc.org

·        requires no previous knowledge of NVC
