Community, at home and in the workplace, is created moment to moment. Now we can do it purposefully. Embodying Nonviolent Communication gives us tools to practice while we are working, mobilizing our physical, emotional and linguistic resources to walk our talk with power AND compassion.
Clear honest communication and skillful listening is at the heart of this series.
Embodying Nonviolent Communication trains our attention to the needs underlying conflict. This keeps difficult moments from turning violent and leads to creative and collaborative problem solving.

Nonviolent Communication is a practice that helps us be more fully present and responsible for the choices we make. It is a practice that centers us squarely into our compassionate nature. Presence and compassion inform and empower the choices we make, what we communicate and the actions we take in the world.
Nonviolent Communication offers practices that help free us from destructive and hidden familial, cultural and historical patterns of communicating.
