SPECIAL FOCUS FOR THIS SERIES: Dealing with Anger and Negative Judgments – Your Own and Other People’s:
When others speak while angry you might have a hard time hearing them, even though they really want to be heard. In this series we’ll practice ways to make it easier to listen and stay connected, even when there is a lot of anger. We’ll also practice methods of self-connection and self-understanding that help you figure out the true message of your own anger and that of others, and to extract meaning and direction from even the most painful judgments.

Connected Communication means:

  • Asking for what you want, and being able to handle a “yes” or “no” answer
  • Having fewer fights, and being able to quickly receive the GIFT from them if they do happen
  • Enjoying every-day intimacy – the joy of really knowing and being known by the people you’re closest to

and increasing your capacity to:

  • Be around conflict without panicking or collapsing
  • Support others who are going through tough times
  • Value the giving and receiving of feedback, even when it’s scary


I want others to get these gifts and more, and to get them as quickly as possible, so I’ve created the “Working Together to Connect 4-week Committed Series.” In this series you will be able follow the Communication Dojo approach step-by-step with the same cohort of fellow students. You will first learn the “Connected Conversation Process,” the foundational process of the Communication Dojo, and from there we’ll add the skills, awareness and attitude of Connected Communication.

All you need is the desire to have an easier and more enjoyable experience of communication with those you’re close to, and more capacity to communicate with the ones you have most difficulty with currently…and a willingness to have fun while learning!

The program is suited to those who are completely new to the Communication Dojo, or those who’ve done our workshops before. No specific experience with Connected Communication (or “Compassionate Communication,” “Nonviolent Communication” etc.) is needed.

Cost: $150 – $300 sliding scale for the series. The sliding scale means that we’d love to receive $300 per person for the series, and we also want to offer a range of prices so as to enable people to attend for whom the $300 price is not affordable.

I am interested in the dealing with anger and negative judgement workshop. Are they still openings? Also, I am currently living in Los Angeles. Is this offered also online?
