Join us in creating a compassionate world
of honesty, empathy and authenticity. 

We are creating a world where people are connecting across differences and resolving conflict nonviolently and collaboratively -- not through the use of violence, force or coercion, but instead by connecting with our common humanity and engaging our compassionate nature.

 

Creating a different world

Envision a compassionate world of honesty, empathy and authenticity...

Where people are connecting across differences and resolving conflict nonviolently and collaboratively -- not through the use of violence, force or coercion, but instead by connecting with our common humanity and engaging our compassionate nature.

Where people find creative and interactive ways to transform their conflicts -- and their enemy images of one another -- through a process of communication that connects us across differences in gender, age, race, sexual orientation, religion and political beliefs.

Where peace, mutual respect and compassionate relationships are the norm.

 

Sharing Compassionate Communication

Welcome to a compassionate world where everyone's needs matter

Compassionate Communication...

  • Offers life-enriching tools to create an environment where people use communication to exchange the information necessary to resolve their differences peacefully.
  • Emphasizes emotional intelligence over intellectual analysis by providing a life-changing way of interacting that facilitates the flow of communication with a focus on universal human needs by employing emotional intelligence in expressing what’s going on in people.
  • Raises the bar for communication by relying on objective observations rather than evaluations.
  • Avoids making people defend themselves from value-laden judgments by employing clear requests in place of demands.
  • Allows everyone to get their needs met on their own terms without coercion, fear of retribution, or loss of self-esteem.
