Radical Honesty

“Out beyond ideas of right and wrong, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” – Rumi

Our survival as a species depends on our ability to recognize that our well-being and the well-being of others is in fact one and the same.” – Marshall Rosenberg

In this moment of collective heartache, grief and rage over the continued police killings of black and brown people, the coronavirus pandemic, political polarization, and the growing impact of climate devastation, how can we use communication as a tool for peace building and compassion?

Nonviolent Communication, or NVC, is a philosophy and practice that supports us to speak with radical honesty, cultivate empathy for ourselves and others, and work towards transforming conflict in real time.

Grounded in the awareness of what’s alive in our hearts and minds in each moment, we will learn and practice the art of Nonviolent Communication in order to connect more deeply with our family, our friends, our community members, and even with those we passionately disagree with.

This dynamic workshop includes small group and one-on-one dialogue practices, guided meditation, journaling and role-playing to practice integrating and embodying Nonviolent Communication in our own lives and in the world.
