Human beings are social animals. How we relate to one another affects our ability to survive and thrive. Are you as close to other people as you would like to be? Are there relationships that are more distant, frustrating or combative than you would like? Would you like to have more ease, flow and aliveness in your relationships?

In this workshop, we will explore, conceptually and experientially, some key ideas that affect how we relate to others. Ideas likely to be touched on include:

  • Self-responsibility (for interpretations, feelings, needs, actions)
  • Interdependence (how we need one another and are affected by one another)
  • Seeing others' humanity (transforming "enemy images" and strengthening our "empathic imagination")
  • Including others in decisions without giving up self-determination
  • Traps in close relationships (submission, expectations, etc.)

Who This is For

Participants ideally will have had some prior experience with Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also known as Compassionate Communication. If NVC is new to you, please plan to prepare yourself by participating in Friday evening's workshop "A Taste of Nonviolent Communication."
