Join us on Saturday, March 13 from 1-2 PM, for an opportunity to learn more about Family HEART Camp.
Family HEART Camp is an unforgettable one-week immersion in Compassionate Communication for families, held in an oasis of natural beauty near Washington DC.
During this informal gathering you can meet in person with one of the organizers of the camp, some families who attended last year camp and meet other potential campers face-to-face. Kids are welcome to join this gathering, being held in Takoma Park within walking distance of the DC metro. Please e-mail Inessa (firstname.lastname@example.org) for specific directions if you would like to attend.
Compassionate Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication, or NVC) offers a powerful set of tools and perspectives that support people in living their values, and in speaking in acting in ways that say “You matter!” to everyone involved. In doing so, we create a setting for our natural love and joy in being together to bloom.
The Family HEART Camp offers parents a chance to reflect and learn valuable skills, children a chance to play and explore, and families a chance to grow together, all with loving support. Participants in last year’s camp had this to say about it:
- “I have never experienced such dedication as I did from all the staff members! Unbelievable. I also enjoyed the support and connection with all of the participants. Thank you so much for the experience.”
- “We enjoyed connecting with so many people who value compassionate relationships and my family is committed to working to embody NVC in our lives. We’re hoping to return next year!”
- “This experience was very valuable for us as a family as a new beginning of how we want to communicate to each other and beyond! The ability to meet without the children was pivotal and addressing real situations helped to support the practice.”
- “The staff cared for our children better than we could have – we get angry with them sometimes, but the staff never did!”
