Free Compassionate Communication Workshop

On March 13th, 2011 I celebrated my graduation from the World School of Massage and Holistic Healing Arts with a certification diploma in Holistic Health & Wellness Practitioner. This 1,600 hour course included Professional Massage Therapy, Master Life Coaching, Energy and Somatic Massage, Spa Services, and Family Health Services.

The Master Life Coaching Program is one of the premiere self development and healthy living courses in the world today. The scope and objectives of the transformational living and the professional life coaching mastery program are wholly unique and visionary in the world of optimum health, personal transformation and prosperity. Just to give you an idea, here is  a partial list of the subjects that we explored in that program:

  • Committed Relationships
  • Compassionate Communication
  • Present Moment Awareness Stress Release
  • Releasing Mental Programs Emotional Mastery
  • Creating a Healthy Home Language of Healing

… and so much more!

So I was thrilled to find out that my club, Club Sport of San Ramon, is offering a free workshop in “Compassionate Communication” to the public.

I checked today, and you do not need to be a member to attend this workshop.

When: Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 2-3:30 pm in Studio Two.
Address: 350 Bollinger Canyon Lane, San Ramon, CA 94582
(925) 735-8500  

The  “Compassionate Communications” module that I learned was taught by a company called NVC (Nonviolent Communication) which is a process developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s and 70s.

It is a language of the heart where you learn how to cultivate the ability to listen and speak in a way that honors yourself and others. Engage with others in a way that is both non-violent and dynamic.

I will be there – hope to see you too!

Note: NVC often functions as a conflict resolution process. It focuses on two aspects of communication: honest self-expression (defined as expressing oneself in a way that is likely to inspire compassion in others) and empathy (defined as listening with deep compassion).
NVC is based on the idea that humans are innately compassionate, while violence (psychological and physical) are learned through culture. NVC theory supposes all human behavior stems from attempts to meet a small set of human needs. Needs are believed never to be in conflict. Rather, conflict arises when strategies for meeting needs clash. NVC proposes that if people can identify the needs of others, and the feelings that surround the needs, harmony can be achieved.
