Awakening our Passion, Living in Compassion

  3-day training:  November 21-23, 2014 at Martin de Porres Center, Columbus, OH

   Join us to deepen your inner practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and develop connection with "the living energy of needs" or "the beauty of needs," the foundation for Living Compassion and is core to living and integrating NVC into life.

    The deepening work that we will focus on is to establish a clear pathway to first identifying, then experiencing and cultivating this consciousness. I am interested in supporting an embodied spirituality and a way to engage in a living practice in our everyday, moment-to-moment living.

   The trainer for this event is Robert Gonzales (pictured left) from Portland, Oregon and founder of the Center for Living Compassion.  Learn more here and register here.
