Level 1: NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION FOUNDATION CLASS- WEEKEND INTENSIVE (Elana Sabajon - CNVC Certified Trainer) (Bozeman Yoga Center, Bozeman MT)
Everything we do in life involves communication. Every word counts. Revolutionary yet simple, Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a practical and learnable process for communicating with empathy, honesty, confidence and compassion. NVC supports connection with oneself and others so everyone's needs are equally valued. This allows people to create strategies and meaningful solutions that resolve issues and create thriving relationships in all aspects of life. Using Nonviolent Communication tools, participants will learn how to transform everyday blame, shame, and critical expression into interactions that focus on mutual human needs. More that 250,000 people each year are learning these life-changing skills.
