“Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”- Rumi

Sat, Jan 13- 12:30-5:30pm: Relate to Feelings and Needs
Sun, Jan 14- 12:30-5:30pm: Translate Judgments

Conflict happens, so learn to handle it well. Disputes typically occur when opposing strategies clash. By excavating what's actually beneath the friction, you can focus on the deeper motivation and even build trust. Learn to compassionately understand why you do what you do and to unpack your judgments, so that you can begin to shift your awareness.

Guided by NYCNVC facilitator Cat McCarthy, this workshop introduces the key concepts of NVC (Non-Violent Communication) as a foundation upon which to build a practice.You will explore your engrained habits, acquire tools of emotional intelligence, and generate new neural pathways for empathy. With a new relationship to your own feelings and needs, you can create stronger connection both inside and out.

There will be a mix of asana, playful exercises, and discussion, so please bring a yoga mat, notebook/pen, along with an open heart and a curious mind. Get ready to shift your perspective on a cellular level!
