Balance purpose, relationships, and self-care

Empathy works. It always does.

Nonviolent Communication

Nonviolent Communication is not for the weak of heart. It is not about being nice. It is not about compromise.

Nonviolent Communication is about having the courage to express your feelings and needs truthfully, and to listen empathically to the feelings and needs of others. It is about offering your requests with Santa Claus energy. Nonviolent Communication is about finding solutions that work for everyone.

Nonviolent Communication is an understanding, a set of skills, a consciousness. It is a language from the heart that we can learn, practice, and master. It is based in the teachings of Marshall Rosenberg.

I feel excited and honored to teach, coach, and mediate in Nonviolent Communication. I have found it the most powerful skill set to deepen connection and relate to strangers. It helps to hear hard-to-hear messages, and to transform conflict.
