“Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” —Rumi

Conflict happens, so learn to navigate it well. By excavating what’s beneath any friction, you can focus on the deeper motivation and change the conversation to one of understanding. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) helps you to understand compassionately your habitual behavior and to translate your judgments. Guided by the NYCNVC facilitator Cat McCarthy, this three-hour workshop introduces the key concepts of NVC as a foundation on which to build a practice. You will acquire tools of emotional intelligence to help generate new neural pathways for empathy. With a relationship to your own feelings and needs, you can create stronger connection both inside and out. There will be a mix of asana, playful exercises, and discussion. Get ready to shift your perspective on a cellular level! Please bring a notebook and pen, along with an open heart and a curious mind. Includes Yoga: All Levels
