Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life
Tuesdays, May 14 – June 11
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm in the Gathering Room of the Admin Building
Facilitator: Gale Perkins, LCSW, L.U.T. (Licensed Unity Teacher)
Most of us have been educated from birth to compete, judge, demand, diagnose, think and communicate in terms of what is “right” and “wrong” with people. Thinking and communicating this way creates misunderstanding and frustration that can lead to anger, depression and even emotional or physical violence.
In the class, based on the book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D., we will learn the world-renowned four-part Nonviolent Communication process and how to transform the thinking, language and moralistic judgments that keep us from creating the loving, enriching relationships that we truly desire. We’ll learn how to resolve conflict with ease, get what we want without demands, really hear the needs of others, and strengthen our personal and professional relationships.
If you are ready to change your relationships by learning to speak and listen to others, and to ask for what you need, from a place of love rather than fear, then please join us as together we learn how to recreate our personal relationships and a world that is more loving, peaceful and joyful.
Ten SEE Credits are available upon successful completion of this course. A $36 fee is required to register SEE credits with Unity Institute. Pre-pregistration has closed, but you may still register at the first class.
The suggested love offering is $10 per class session. “Nonviolent Communication can change the world. More importantly, it can change your life.” ~ Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul Series
