Join Rachelle Lamb, certified trainer of Nonviolent Communication℠ as she presents the differences between life alienating communication and healthy life-nourishing relating that effectively strengthens bonds between people while being anchored to life itself. Deeply relevant in these troubled times.
ABOUT THE TRAINING:
Explore a revolutionary approach to speaking up, establishing rapport and resolving differences. Radically shift your experience of communication with this liberating, transformational and dynamic practice rooted in spiritual and emotional intelligence. Break through limiting thought and speech patterns established through social conditioning, and replace them with a powerful way of communicating that is deeply satisfying, life honouring and creatively liberating. Come with an open mind so you can experience the power of vibrant, authentic connection with those you love, those you don’t love, and the living world that sustains you.
‘Speak a language of life’ is a workshop title that acknowledges the need we have as human beings to know that we matter to others, not in the romantic or intimate sense even though that can be lovely, but rather in the sense that because dominant culture teaches people to see life primarily in terms of “resources”, it takes disciplined “unlearning” and retraining, especially where language is concerned, to overcome well-practiced enculturation habits that tragically normalize alienating and “power over” ways of relating with each other.
“Engaging, dynamic, transformational, liberating … a must attend!”
“A workshop that truly speaks to the heart!! A wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to explore an alternate way of being! An opportunity that speaks to our essence.”
