trust, respect, and understanding that leads to life-enriching and mutually
satisfying relationships. Through games, exercises, role-plays, and working with
real-life situations, we will practice translating judgments, threats, and
demands into life-enriching messages. We will explore how to transform power
struggles into caring relationships based on honesty and empathy.

family on this unique retreat!For Youth 5 & up, Parents, Guardians, and All Who

CATHERINE CADDEN has been an educator since 1987. In 1997, she founded The TEMBA
School, a visionary K - 8 academic program rooted in nonviolent philosophy,
Nonviolent Communication, sustainable living, and artistic expression. She has
developed programs specific for youth including Play in the Wild! Initiations
into Nonviolence and TEMBA Peace Players. Catherine is also a Center for
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Certified Trainer and has offered trainings to
people of all ages in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia,
Afghanistan, and Argentina. Her passion for helping people connect with youth is
fueled by the belief that if we "truly see" the beauty within each youth rather
than the "enemy-image" created by us or society, then we can build trusting,
respectful, productive relationships, thus creating the peaceful world we want.
