Inner Peace, Outer Connection: Explore the Skills of Nonviolent Communication

EVENT: Saturday, December 14 from 1–4 p.m.

Navigating the Challenges of the Holiday Season

Would you prefer to be a beacon of peace during the holidays, rather than a frazzled recipient of holiday expectations pouring in from friends, relatives, the world in general, even yourself? Imagine yourself able to replace frustration and crabbiness with joy and equanimity, whether you are alone or with others.

In this participatory workshop, we will learn ways to give ourselves support through honing our ability to connect with ourselves and others in a deeply satisfying way.
