Changing the world with power & compassion.
Does any of this fit for you?
• You care about animal cruelty and wish everyone else did, too?
• Sometimes your heart just breaks open when you hear about it? You may
become angry when others don’t know or care about mistreatment of animals?
• You want to become more effective in talking with others about the issues that
concern you so much?
• You want to find ways to sustain yourself for the long haul?
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) can support you in being a powerful, yet compassionate agent of change.
It can help you stay connected with what matters to you, dialogue with people who have other viewpoints,
access energy to fuel your social change work, and embody your values even more deeply.
We will focus on how to remain authentic and be compassionate, stay focused on what you want, and
come from your heart. In this way, you can develop resilience and confidence – important ingredients
to keep this work sustainable.
