Description

Join us for this weekend workshop on Compassionate-Nonviolent Communication where you will learn how to artfully self-manage your reactions; empathize with others; and find solutions that restore harmony, are in integrity with your values, and hold everyone’s needs with care.

        Early bird discount (through June 7, 2019):  $295 for adults | $200 for ages 13-22
    Standard price (after June 7):  $310 for adults | $230 for ages 13-22

  • Questions:  For questions regarding registration, logistics, scholarships, travel, or housing, please email the host (Powell House) directly.

Those around us can do or say things that we don’t like, disagree with, find hurtful, infuriating, or even plain wrong. So how do we, in these moments, find our common humanity and speak truth to power?

Join us for this engaging and interactive program that includes exercises, games, pair work, role play, and music.  We’ll explore the core practices of Nonviolent Communication as well more advanced practices such as Protective Use of Force and how the very way we communicate each day can be a radical act of social change.
