SPECIAL FOCUS FOR THIS SERIES: Making Requests and Hearing/Saying “No” in a way that maintains connection

What better way to start 2020 than to get better at asking for what you want?

What do you want to ask for? What do you want to say “Yes” to, and where is your honest answer a “No”? Making requests is often necessary if we want to give others the opportunity to support us. The risk of hearing “No” to our requests is one of many reasons we do not ask. Also, when others ask things of us we can be afraid to ever say “No” – thus putting us at risk of growing exhaustion or resentment. In this series we’ll practice making requests, and saying and hearing “No,” in a way that maintains and grows connection between us.

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: $320 – $160 sliding scale for the series - this means we’d love to receive $320 for the series, and would like to receive a minimum of $160. We make the sliding scale available so that the workshops are affordable for a greater number of people. Let us know if money is an obstacle for you.
