Nonviolent Communication Training Coming Up in New York

Rita Herzog and Roberta Wall will lead a week-long workshop called “Nonviolent Communication: Learning the Language of Compassion” from July 10-16 at the Elat Chayyim retreat center in Accord NY. In this week-long workshop participants will learn and practice the art of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as developed by Marshall Rosenberg. Nonviolent Communication is seen as a powerful tool for peacefully resolving differences at personal, professional, and political levels. These skills have been successfully applied to parents and families, health care, educational, and work settings, social services, police and prisons, and social change organizations. Using compassionate communication, the workshop will connect to teachings about speech and listening within Judaism, and incorporate Jewish rituals to connect. Participants will learn how to discuss and listen to others about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, holding an open heart and expressing ourselves with deep honesty.

Rita has been an NVC practitioner and trainer for twenty years. Roberta has just returned from teaching NVC at the Gandhi Institute in Delhi. For more information or to register, call (800) 398-2630 or visit JewishRetreatCenter.org.
