The Art and Science of Getting Along: Intro to NVC (NonViolent Communication) with Cat McCarthy, E-RYT 500, YACEP, RYS
Saturday, November 23 • 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
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 your habitual behavior compassionately and to translate and transform your judgments. Guided by the NYCNVC facilitator Cat McCarthy, this two-hour workshop introduces the key concepts of NVC as a foundation upon 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 a stronger connection both inside and out. Please bring an open heart and a curious mind. Get ready to shift your perspective just in time for the coming holidays.
