Event description

Description

This workshop is specifically for the teens in the Teens Explore programme of Shama. Attendance is expected for all teens in the programme as it builds our capacity to communicate well with others in the group, with our families and with others in our community and to be change makers for making the world a better place.

We all have a universal need for connection. This workshop offers a way of communicating that leads us to connect from the heart. We offer a guide of reframing how we express ourselves & hear others. Instead of using habitual automatic reactions, our words can become conscious responses based firmly on an awareness based on what we are perceiving, feeling & wanting.

Use Compassionate Communication to empathically connect to your needs & the needs of others in order to resolve conflict peacefully. It's is based on the work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg (founder of NVC).

• Develop & foster supportive relationships at home, with friends & work colleagues.

• Break patterns of thinking that can lead to anger, arguments and depression.

• Learn the skills of giving & receiving empathy.

• Learn the power of connecting to your own needs

Facilitated by Wayne Prince & Deb Hipperson, NVC Trainers. For information on their experience and work, go here.

Light refreshments provided. Bring your own lunch--there is a microwave to heat your food if you wish.
