Now More Than Ever... NVC and Social Justice

Thursday, May 2, 2019, 2:00 AM

Now More Than Ever, I want to support our individual and collective efforts towards powerful social change and social justice movements, drawing on the principles and practices of NVC (nonviolent/compassionate communication) and WTR (Work That Recoonects from Joanna Macy). In this series of 5 sessions (over the course of 6 weeks), Kristin aims to pulse between principles and practices that can support focus and clarity of purpose of our individual social justice campaigns. Come with your own agendas and goals, or come prepared to be influenced by others, either way, there is power to be harnessed here. We will use live examples to connect with the inspirations of our dreams/visions, our broken hearted mournings, our calls to action and our confrontation with real and perceived blocks. We will use of our collective empathy and intelligence to tackle blocks to our effective, powerful action in our communities, country and world.  It will help to have understanding of the basics of NVC, a needs/values based approach to communication and consciousness. However, if you are willing to learn this on the journey, Kristin can provide context and support, and point you toward learning tools.  The class will meet on the following dates: 5/1, (skip 5/8) 5/15, 5/22, 5/29 and last class on 6/5. Each class will meet from 7-9pm. After the second meeting on 5/15 the group will be closed to new members. Consider attending with a fellow social change activist, in irder to give one another support.
