How would your life be different if you treated yourself with the love, care, and kindness you always longed for?  And how would you treat others, and show up differently in the world, with this kind of love in your life?

Learn how to use the practical tools of Nonviolent Communication to help transform negative patterns and self-talk into empowering choices based on your needs — free of blame, demand, guilt, and shame.

COST: Tuition is $295; Room and Board options range from $208-778 (dormitory, shared room, and private room with a view).

TIMES: Friday 7:30–9:00 pm; Saturday 8:30–11:30 am and 1:45–3:45 pm; and Sunday 9:00–11:00 am (overnight rooms ready by 4:00 pm)

In this residential weekend program, you will learn how to:

  • Transform your inner critic into your best friend.
  • Make decisions that truly meet your needs.
  • Move through regret and mourning to learning and celebration.
  • Shift from painful to life-serving behaviors.
  • Increase your authenticity, connection, and power.

This program also includes small group exercises, games, role-playing, and an opportunity to work with the Empathy Labyrinth with special guest Marc Weiner.  What does love look like, when put into action?  Join us to find out and transform your life!

Note: This is Mother’s Day weekend, so attend with your mother or daughter and support each other in developing the gift of self-compassion.  While you are at Kripalu for this program, you can also participate in their yoga or meditation classes, or schedule a healing arts session on Saturday evening (for an additional fee).
