An evening of play with communication. June 7 2011

Have you ever thought back on a conversation with a friend, coworker, or significant other, and thought, “Well THAT could have gone better.”?
So have we!

We’re hosting a group of college students on June 7th at Maitri House for an introductory workshop in Compassionate Communication (aka NVC or Collaborative Communication), and would like to invite anyone who is interested to join us!
Compassionate Communication is a way of approaching relationships that reaches for empathy, connection, mutual understanding, and everyone being more aware of the needs at play. It is frequently taught as a means for resolving conflicts, but on a deeper level, the intention behind Compassionate Communication is to have more authentic and fulfilling relationships.
Tuesday, June 7 @ MAITRI HOUSE5:30 – gathering/socializing
6:00 – potluck dinner
7:00 – Ryan and Emily share an introduction to the main ideas and practice of Compassionate Communication, followed by an interactive role plays giving opportunity for anyone to try out Compassionate Communication on a real-life scenario.

What to Bring:
– Food and/or non-alcoholic beverages are welcome, but feel free to come even if you’re not able to bring comestibles
– At least one scenarios to use for discussion or role play.  These scenarios can be any any interaction you’ve had (or hypothetically could have) that you weren’t happy with.  This could be with family, coworkers, significant others, friends, etc.  It can even be an internal conflict (the “me” that stayed up all night watching tv and the “me” that had to take a test the next day, for example).

Feel free to pass this invitation along to anyone who might be interested!
