Hearing Each Other's Hearts:
NVC Basics for Couples
a Saturday morning communication workshop
for three couples
January 26, 2019 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Are you and your partner struggling to understand each other?
Is it hard to ask for what you want?
Are you ready to transform the way you speak & listen so you can really hear each other's hearts, without giving up on your own?
Let's get you some simple-but-profound tools that can really make a big difference.
In this experiential workshop, couples will learn and practice the basic skills and principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC)* so that you have a foundation for authentic, empowered, and connected conversations.
NVC skills and principles taught will support couples to move out of the blame game and into heart-centered connection. You will learn to:
- Cultivate empathy
- Identify your feelings and needs
- Speak from the heart
- Make empowered requests
- Resolve conflicts
- Attune to each other/monitor connection
- Recognize when and how to take a break from difficult conversations without harming the connection
Each couple will receive:
- a new deck of Grok Cards to take home (a $28 value),
- a packet of handouts for continued practice,
- a template for how to have difficult conversations, and
- a resource list to learn more.
Space is limited to three couples, and each couple will receive individual attention from the facilitator.
Couples of all sexual orientations and relationship configurations warmly welcome.

Location: 1600 Shattuck Ave., Suite 200, Berkeley, CA 94709
