NON-VIOLENT COMMUNICATION WORKSHOP
This workshop is an opportunity for those working for social justice to receive training in concrete skills for Non-Violent Communication. The workshop will be facilitated by the Freedom Project, a UUC Seeds of Justice grant recipient. The Freedom Project works in Washington State prisons to address the healing of relationships ruptured by violence and help transform prisoners into peacemakers. Their use of Non-Violent Communication (NVC) is based on developing compassion and connection with one’s self and with others to reframe communication and find peaceful resolution to conflict. Mindfulness techniques will be used to help you focus your attention on what matters and strengthen your ability to inspire compassion and teamwork from others. The workshop will include time to practice the techniques discussed.
Date: Saturday, April 15 from 9:00 – 3:00 at UUC, in the Knatvold room downstairs.
Fee: $25 per person – includes lunch (pay online at registration, or pay at the door when you arrive)
Please register on-line, at the Sunday “Get Connected” table, or by calling the UUC office (206-525-8400).
