Oliver and Luke: We’ll first speak about our journey in learning about Marshall Rosenberg’s work in non-violent communication. Oliver will then lead us through a guided practice that invites us to listen to our inner dialogue, employ our inner giraffe-ness (this will make more sense in the class…. SO COME JOIN US!!), and attempt to find valuable messages and insights hiding in the realm that exists behind the dialogue we are hearing. After the break we’ll share thoughts about common communication stoppers. We’ll take a look at how conversations can get ‘rock’ed (in a detrimental way) when seemingly appropriate responses are given to those we are speaking to.
