Opportunity to take Non-Violent Communication training this summer!!

I have learned there are two effective strategies
to bring about the compassionate, non-violent world
which we all want:
  1. direct service work for the needy, and
  2. inner-work (transformative process work) on ourselves.
One of the most powerful tools I have encountered
in the area of self-process work, is the system of

by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD.

I am pleased to announce that this summer,
there is a rare opportunity to learn NVC, as
NVC New York Intensive returns to Binghamton!

For me, NVC clarifies so much about communication,
  • WHY we communicate
    • joy of connection, and
    • try to get our needs met

  • HOW to communicate in a way which serves life.
    • how to express gratitude (Thank you)
    • how to make a request (Please), and
    • how to give empathy / deep listening (Help! I'm in pain!)

The NVC New York Intensive is an annual,
week-long intensive/immersion training program,
and it's the best way to learn the system.

(It's very simple, anyone can learn it!
But it takes some time -- 6 days -- to sit with the model,
practice it with role plays, and sometimes
with the example of unexpected real-life dramas
which always seem to arise)

Local commuters with there own lodging will pay signficicantly less
than people who come from other areas (these events usually have
international scope, with attendees from many countries/states)
and financial aid is available to help local people attened.

I encourage everyone to look into taking this training. I find it to be one of the most valuable and practical tools
for bringing about inner peace, and global peace.

Please send this note to other area-listservs and to interested parties!!
