Heartful Communication Classes Coming Up in CA

Sharda Miller will be conducting two Heartful Communication Classes at the beginning of April. The first, is “Heartful Communication: Person-to-Person” on Saturday, April 1, 2006�. 10 AM – 4PM. If you would like to experience more authentic, heartful communication in relationships � whether with a partner, family member, friend or business colleague, this group is for you. The group will explore the specific skills of Active Listening and Nonviolent Communication (as developed by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD) that support greater connection and open-heartedness. Honest communication goes beyond blame and judgment and focuses instead on feelings and needs. This experiential class will be small enough to allow plenty of time for sharing and practice. Bring a lunch or eat at a nearby restaurant. The second class is Heartful Communication: Group Processes on Saturday, April 8, 2006 from 10 AM-12 noon and 1 PM-4PM. This day is for those who would like to venture into deeper, more authentic conversations in larger groups. Today will be spent exploring various group communication processes involving 5 or 50 persons � in a work environment, classroom, church or synagogue, political meeting or a convention. The class is perfect for teachers looking for new ways of holding classroom discussions or staff meetings. Differences of opinion that can arise in these situations can be the doorway to deeper avenues of exploration. Come prepared for deep conversation on hot topics. Bring a lunch or eat at a nearby restaurant. Cost is $45 per class. Both classes will take place at: Los Gatos-Saratoga Community Education and Recreation Center; 123 E. Main St., Los Gatos, Ca 95030; Call 408-354-8700 to sign up and for directions. Or for more information contact Sharda Miller at thelisteningpath@aol.com or 510-435-2327.
