Hear & Be Heard
An introduction to compassionate communication
How often have you lost connection with someone because of misunderstandings and judgments?
Have you ever tried to speak up to make it better, only to make it worse?
Would you rather be able to hear and be heard in a way that brings you closer together?
Compassion, honesty, understanding, connection…
…we all long for it, but let’s face it – it’s not always so easy!
In this workshop, based on Marshall Rosenberg’s ‘Nonviolent Communication’, I will introduce principles and practices to support you in developing compassionate understanding for yourself and others.
We will be exploring skills and tools for …
- keeping your heart open to the human longings behind each other’s words, even during conflict
- expressing yourself fully and honestly (and still being heard!)
- going beyond ideas of rightness and wrongness and turning conflict into connection
Date & Time:
Wednesday 14th August 2019
19:00 – 21:15
Please arrive by 18:45 so you have time to get settled and we can all start on time at 7pm
Centrum de Gouden Piramide
Grote Wade, 21c, 3439NX, Nieuwegein
