Nonviolent Communication session
Join Steve Backus @ the Library on Feb. 8 @ 6:30 p.m. for an hour long introduction to Nonviolent Communication, a process developed by Marshall Rosenberg that helps connect people through compassion, not contention. Steve, a teacher at St. Scholastica, will present an overview of NVC and share some central practices that help people create a more peace-centered, life-affirming consciousness. NVC provides people with strategies to defuse tense situations and disagreeable conflicts by moving from the head to the heart and from exasperation to empathy.
