"The most important thing is that we need to be understood. We need someone to be able to listen to us and to understand us. Then we will suffer less."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
This series deeply develops your understanding of empathy and your ability to connect with yourself and others from compassion. Together we will learn to expand the possibility of compassion in challenging and sweet moments, and broaden awareness of how to choose empathy when triggered. We will practice speaking our deepest truths while showing care for other's needs. This series will blend role plays, didactic and experiential learning.
Meganwind Eoyang came to the study of nonviolent communication from a very different world. She grew up street fighting on the south side of Chicago. Her longing for sweet, deep connection with fellow humans arose after first finding safety and meaning in nature. She was excited to discover that Nonviolent Communication offers clear steps for practicing the compassion, self love, and love for others which her Chinese, European and North American (and other) spiritual traditions invite us to live. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
