Time: 9:30am to 5:30pm (Pacific)

Workshop is now online — Zoom link available with registration.


CHALLENGE: In our culture, we are taught to stuff emotions, to “suck it up” and “be tough”. We are often driven to be “selfless” in our giving, to give even when we don’t have resources available, and that our needs don’t matter. Our own “inner critic” has a tremendous impact on our mood, and we aren’t taught tools for dealing with them. At work especially we are encouraged to wear a mask to pretend everything is okay even when it’s not. Conflict arises when different positions are expressed, people’s emotions get triggered and usually blame others for them. The loudest voices and bigger titles usually win. It isn’t safe to be real; instead we are encouraged to be “nice.”


Learning Objectives:

* Pay attention to the thoughts, stories that arise in the moment

* Transform blame/judgments through self-empathy using various processes

* Intuitively identify with your needs — Embody the living energy of needs meditation

* Identify thinking/faux feelings, how they show up as default drama strategies

* Develop tools for getting to presence through self-empathy, giving you inner-peace, groundedness, clarity, self-empowerment, choicefulness, abundance of options — all of which support living more fully

* Tap into your natural compassion

About NVC:  NVC is a non-judgmental paradigm of relating that includes introspection, deep listening with empathy, and honest expression. NVC was started by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD in the 1960s. Today, NVC is taught around the world, and has been applied in a wide variety of contexts, including business and nonprofit settings. Formal studies have begun to document the benefits of NVC, which include organizational effectiveness, increased efficiency, and support for individual well-being.
