Nonviolent Communication (NVC,) “a language of life,” is a powerful tool for interpersonal communication and connection, a support for social change, and a language of compassion for any life situation. In a lively and supportive environment, we integrate practices that support you to examine the way you think, communicate and relate to yourself and others in your life, and to help liberate you from the following habitual patterns:

•Judging/criticizing self and others

•Taking things personally, and reacting overtly or covertly

•Acting from fear, obligation, duty, or guilt

•Suffering in anger, hurt, and/or depression

Taught in over 60 countries, NVC can support you to express honestly without blame, judgments or criticism; hear others' pain without trying to fix it or them; and become more effective in living your values and meeting your goals.

Come enjoy the magnificent coastal ambience of Esalen in Big Sur, California.
