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.

Live the Empathic Life Through Effective Conversation

Do you wish you could communicate with others in a way that fosters real understanding, connection and empathy? Is it difficult to ask for what you want? Are you stressed by the way you relate with your partner, family, friends, your boss or work colleagues? This group will allow you to: • Discover your natural power of empathy • Connect more deeply with those in your life • Find comfort and confidence with conflicts that arise in relationships • Experience the "Yes" behind the "No" • Learn to fearlessly ask for what you want • Move past stories that cause conflict, pain and defense in your relationships Facilitated by Marty Epstein, M.S., a coach, mediator, and trainer in both "Effective Conversation” and Nonviolent Communication. Marty is a teacher of Sanskrit and a Certified Facilitator for the Work of Byron Katie. He has also given workshops at the UN; taught negotiation at Columbia University & conflict resolution at Pace University; and successfully managed large-scale assignments for companies like Charles Schwab & Co., Bank of NY, Mellon Corp. and Merrill Lynch.
