Changing the world with power & compassion

By popular demand we have invited Jean back to run a full day workshop on non-violent communication. This workshop is for anyone wanting to learn how to communicate effectively and compassionately to encourage change. See below more information about Jean and non-violent communication.

Places are limited on this workshop so please register your interest with us now. We will be running this workshop to cover costs only. This will make the ticket price $75 per person. The date is 9 August and the location will be at Toi Poneke just off Cuba street. If you would love to attend but the ticket price is out of reach please reply to this email to Lyndsay.

Let us know if you want to register.
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.

About Jean (Majida) McElhaney

Caretakers wanted – Raglan

A lovely three bedroom home with garden and animals is available in Raglan (near the town) for house & pet sitting while the owner is away – 29th November 2015 to 19th January 2016.

The owners are vegan, so the pet sitters would need to commit to not cooking or having animal based foods in the house.

They have two cats and a chicken (rescued from the pot) in her own luxury house and enclosure, wh0 would need feeding with food supplied.

They have an organic vege garden and fruit trees, depending on season, with food available to use. They can also pay costs for reasonable power, Internet use. 

The house is not really suitable for small children as it is three levels and the back section is not fenced.

Their son (who is also vegan) lives up the road, and could be contacted with any concerns.

Contact: Loretta and Ross

Phone:  021 236 1859  or  (07) 825 8695
