Introduction to Compassionate Communication - A 6 week evening series (Pam Orbach) (East Shore Unitarian Church , Factoria,)

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new sights, but in looking with new eyes." Marcel Proust. When we experience our needs not being met, and we also hear that some of what we do has impact for others, it can become confusing and disconnecting. This 6 week Monday evening intro to communicating and connecting with compassion will create a possibility for us to have more power in our world in ways that increase connection with ourselves and others.

Money and your life, a compassionate exploration (Pam Orbach, Cleona Lira, Financial advisor and NVC practitioner) (Greenwood NW Seattle)

For some time clients and community members have been asking me to create a workshop on money; how to have it flow and engage with it in ways that reflect Compassionate consciousness. Creating a relationship to money that reflects the abundance we experience when we shift into a needs based awareness. If you are curious, please sign up for this weekend workshop. I am excited to invite Cleona Lira,a London based financial adviser who enjoys helping people understand personal finance.Her passion is creating spaces where honest conversations about money can happen, allowing for a more conscious, liberated relationship with money to unfold. She has a background in Psychology, Financial Planning and Nonviolent Communication. She has been supporting and facilitating workshops in Europe, and has agreed to show up here in Seattle and grace us with her offering.
