Compassionate Communication (CC) also known as Nonviolent Communication (NVC) brings empathy, honesty, change, and peace not just to individuals, but to relationships, congregations, and the greater communities. Based on the foundational work of Marshall Rosenberg and the nonviolence of Ghandi, this practice of nurturing our spirits and healing the world also encompasses Unitarian Universalist faith, sources, traditions, theologies, and principles. In this 4 session course we will introduce the principles of CC, practice the components, and learn how this tool can heal our relationships and congregations. You will also have the chance to ask questions and dialog with up to 24 other congregations. Facilitated by Rev. LoraKim Joyner, Certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer and Unitarian Universalist Community Minister in Multispecies Ministry.
