Nonviolent Communication with a Power Lens: Intro Course (8 Sunday Evenings) (Pam Orbach, Janice Eng) (Online - Zoom)

Do you want to be more aware of the power you have or lack, and be more intentional about your showing up for life? Power in and of itself is neither good nor bad. It is playing a role in every interaction. Even when we choose not to engage, power is playing a role. It is ever present and multifaceted. What would it mean to pay attention to the nuances of power in concert with compassionate communication? Please come join the exploration.

Nonviolent Communication with a Power Lens-Intro Course (Janice Eng, Pam Orbach) (Zoom-Online)

Do you struggle to stay self-connected while connecting with another human being, especially during conflict? Do you refrain from saying something out of concern of impact, on self or others? Do you ever wonder if others hold back from you, or feel uncomfortable sharing their ideas, feelings, needs, or desires with you? In this eight week introduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC), aka Compassionate Communication, we will work with different principles and tools of nonviolence, to increase our ability to think, speak, hear, and act from the heart and out of our relation to one another. Power dynamics are at play in every interaction we have, whether we are conscious of it or not, choose it or not, or like it or not. When we can acknowledge the different places where we hold power (and places where we don’t) it increases our self-awareness, understanding of each other, skill, and mutuality to build a much stronger foundation of connection.
