Non-Violent Communication with Cate Crombie
Saturday Nov 19 10.00am – 4.30pm, held in the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute.
Facility fee $95
Most of us have been educated from birth to compete, judge, demand and diagnose — to think and communicate in terms of what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ with people. We express our feelings in terms of what another person has ‘done to us.’ We struggle to understand what we want or need in the moment, and how to effectively ask for what we want without using unhealthy demands, threats or coercion. As founder of Non-violent Communication, Marshall Rosenberg says, ‘What others do may be a stimulus of our feelings, but not the cause.’
At best, thinking and communicating this way can create misunderstanding and frustration, or simply keep us from getting what we want. It can also keep us from the fulfilling relationships we deserve. And still worse, it can lead to anger, depression and even emotional or physical violence. Join Non-Violent Communication trainer Cate Crombie for a full-day workshop in this transformative approach to both personal and professional relationships.
Saturday 19 Nov 10.00am – 4.30pm, at the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $95.
