FEBRUARY 13, 2018: Today begins the migration of content to our new site.

As of today, anything you enter into your blog or other forms here will not be available in the new site, until it can be manually re-entered. Please hold back from adding any information for the next few days, and check back for further directions.

This site will continue to be active until the public launch of the new site. Staff will be testing and refining the content and functions of the new site between now and then. We appreciate your patience and support during this time. Do send your questions and concerns directly to me in the meantime.

Existing accounts will still be fully active in the meantime, but no new accounts can be registered. 

Compassionate Communication Practice Group

Come practice with us and learn to consistently create the relationships you've always wanted, most importantly the one with yourself! Learn how to ask for what you want in a way that people are excited to give it to you. Build skill in making a quality of connection where all the needs matter, yours and theirs, and notice how solutions "magically" appear once needs are revealed and appreciated. Ellen Shiro is a Marriage/Family Therapist who has been enthusiastically teaching Compassionate Communication for the last 20 years. Participants say her groups meet needs for fun, liveliness, safety, and live changing learning. Please call Ellen for more info. Right now the group meets Wednesday nights in Newport Beach. That evening schedule may change for future groups, depending on time needs of those interested in participating. Please call Ellen for more info at 949 293 3890. You may also go to for more information.
Meeting Times: 
Wednesday from 7:15pm to 9:15pm (If you need a different evening, please call Ellen for alternate schedule.)
