Parenting/Caregiving Grounded in Compassionate Communication (Pam Orbach, Sarah Kmon) (Online - Zoom)

Did you ever go to bed wishing you had said or done something different related to your child? Parenting through a pandemic has been a whole new experience in 2020. Most of us have already noticed ways in which we would like to change and grow in how we look at things and how we show up for ourselves and our children. The world we are facing is offering us an opportunity to reexamine, dream and bring change in so many ways. As we step into 2021, this is a perfect time to find more self compassion and more connecting ways of being in relationship with our children; ways of parenting that will support children to move in the world and in connection with others from a deep seated place of their values, to develop in themselves a groundedness and self trust, as well as an ability to move in the world experiencing love rather than fear... If this speaks to you, this weekend workshop of Compassionate Parenting will support you to be able to discern and have skills to parent for that outcome.

Introduction to Compassionate Communication with a DEI/ power lens (Pam Orbach, Janice Eng) (Zoom)

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead. It is clear the only person we have the power to change is ourselves. Transformation begins with our own work. Are you wanting less polarization and more peace in the world? If you are curious about how to begin or to deepen your practice - how to empathize with those you cannot understand, then this 8 week intro to NVC series is for you.
