Hearing Each Other’s Hearts

Nonviolent Communication Basics

for Couples


a Saturday morning communication workshop in Berkeley

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-yet-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 you and your partner to move out of the blame game and into heart-centered connection. Spend less time fighting and more time connecting!

This workshop will help you:

  • Cultivate empathy

  • Enhance your vocabulary of feelings and needs

  • Speak and listen from your heart

  • Make empowered requests

  • Navigate conflicts with more effectiveness (and prevent many of them!)

  • Recognize when and how to take a break from difficult conversations without harming the connection

  • Understand your own and your partner's needs better so you can find strategies that truly work for both of you

Each couple will receive:

  • a new deck of Grok Cards to take home (a $28 value),

  • a copy of Being Me, Loving You: A Practical Guide to Extraordinary Relationships, a Q&A session with Marshall Rosenberg

  • a packet of handouts for continued practice and integration

  • a template for how to have difficult conversations and resolve conflicts, and

  • a resource list to learn more

Couples of all sexual orientations and relationship configurations are warmly welcome.
