We know you've heard about classes here at SNUUC dealing with Compassionate Communication. Well, now is your opportunity to learn more, up close and personal! This fall, practice groups are once again forming to work with the text Nonviolent Communication – A Language of Life, 2nd ed, by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. and to really discover what it means to live with an open heart, open ears, and a real desire to hear one another clearly and compassionately.
Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma Gandhi) said that "Nonviolence means allowing the positive within you to emerge." Building on this concept, the Compassionate Communication practice group has become a vital small group ministry at SNUUC, open to all adults and youth (11th grade and up). Participants have reflected on the depth of connections made within the group as well as the potential for transformation in all their relationships as they learn to communicate compassionately and clearly with new skills and empathy.
This fall, we are excited to offer TWO 13-session series, a Saturday morning group and a Monday evening group. The Saturday morning group will begin on Satur- day, September 22 and run from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. for 13 Saturday mornings. Our Monday evening group will begin on Monday, September 24 and run from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for 13 Mondays. Pre-registration is requested and attendance at the first six sessions (fundamental track) of either series is required of "newbies." So, if you plan on attending one of these fall series, or know someone who is interested in joining us, please contact Anne Fleming (email@example.com) or Barbara Singer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
