SPECIAL FOCUS FOR THIS SERIES: The Gift of Empathy:
This election season, leading into Holiday Season, means that in the coming weeks the gift of empathy is going to be more vital than ever. People are experiencing fear, aversion, pain and many other strong emotions. To be able to listen to and receive what’s coming up for someone, without needing to agree or disagree, is a rare gift indeed – and one you can give at any time if you choose to. We’re entering a period of gift giving – why not learn how to give and receive this profound and precious gift?

Have you had the experience of someone really listening to you and giving you a sense that they understand not just what you’re saying, but what you’re going through? This kind of listening is often in short supply, but it is vital if communication is to be effective, enjoyable and connected. Listening with empathy is a skill you can learn and develop, and that will be the focus of this series.

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: $140 – $280 sliding scale for the series…this means we’d love to receive $280 for the series, and would like to receive a minimum of $140. Let us know if money is an obstacle for you.
