Pam Orbach

The epiphany moment in my life was discovering Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Experiencing my own profound transformation resulted in new meaning and purpose: 

To support the accessibility of NVC consciousness and practice in the world – a paradigm shift – involving increased self-awareness, authentic communication, and integrity in action and decision-making.

I currently consult with and support businesses, organizations, educational institutions, families, couples and individuals to achieve the vision of what they can fully be. Nonviolent communication and restorative justice principals and practices are the heart of all my work.

I am excited about the potential of working and learning with you.

Giving and Receiving for Couples and Pairs (Pam Orbach, Kristen Jawad) (The Workshop space (Greenwood) Seattle)

This is an opportunity for you and your partner to nurture yourselves and explore giving and receiving together. For many of us, we do not know what we need, it is also hard to ask for what we need, and it can be challenging to receive too. We will engage in a needs exploration, and offer some real time experiences, strategies and ideas for nurturance and deepening connection which support self care, and which can become intentional practice.

Request a "Medicine for Hate" Conversation Workshop (Pam Orbach) (your space in your community)

Consider hosting a 2 hour Medicine for Hate workshop in your living room, church, school, or conference room. Any size group. This is an interactive exploratory conversation that taps into our own experiences to find wisdom and understanding about hate. It offers an opportunity to engage differently with ourselves and others when we are at a loss, or when we find ourselves disconnecting from others as a result of hate speech, or acts of hate. Leaning into hate in order to heal, and open to others can offer empowerment. More details provided below.
