This one-day Foundations class is perfect for people new to NVC/Compassionate Communication or refreshing their practice with the basics.

Most of us are hungry for effective interpersonal communication skills that can help us live a more empowered life. A life less entangled in the destructive negative thinking and self-judgment that keep us from living our fullest potential. We’re also looking for techniques to help us foster strong self-esteem, to heal from emotional pain, and simply communicate more effectively, especially in the heat of conflict. This workshop can offer you a way to begin living your fullest potential.

The Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process offers proven, effective interpersonal communication skills to help you foster healthy, satisfying relationships—with yourself and others.
