Power, Love and Empathy for Advocacy: An Introduction to Nonviolent Communication

Sunday, Mar 23, 2014, 3:15 pm

Using Marshall Rosenberg’s practical wisdom and deep spirituality from his book Nonviolent Communication, we will practice:

  1. Clarifying/empathizing with the humanizing feelings and universal needs/core values both we and our opponents have;
  2. Making bridge-building concrete and in-the-moment observations; and
  3. Creating and persisting with positive, doable, timely, concrete requests that move both our relationships and our work for peace and right relations (justice) along.

These simple skills of authentic and connecting “power with” others will deepen, heal, and transform our own hearts, our advocacy work, and our communities of faith and support.
