Program Details

For everyone.

Learn how to treat yourself with the loving-kindness and compassion that you extend to others. By integrating Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication techniques with coaching and empathy, you gain greater clarity about what matters most, and start making choices that honor all your needs and values.

Embrace the positive intent of your inner critic with practices that guide you to

  • Attune to core aliveness
  • Listen for feelings and needs
  • Connect more deeply with others
  • Speak from the heart
  • Develop a practice of self-empathy
  • Ask for what you really want.

Return home with practical skills that include communicating observations free of evaluations, feelings free of judgment, needs free of strategies, and requests free of demands.
