[SDCPJ] Cultivating Compassion. A Weekend Compassionate Communication Practice Gathering. March 4-6

CULTIVATING COMPASSION

A Weekend Compassionate Communication Practice Gathering.


Private home in Encinitas

 

When: March 4-6 (Friday 6pm-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm)

 

We live in a time of breathtaking change. The old ways of being and doing are working less and less and the new ways of living and creating are only emerging. How to be, how to show up in this transition period can be bewildering. Fortunately, many of us do remember that when things get difficult we can enter strength by opening the heart, letting it just crack open. This weekend will be

 devoted to precisely that!

 

Come experience support, companionship, self-expression, inspiration, learning, and growth as we ask ourselves...

. When it comes to living daily from compassion, what has most life for me?
. What are my challenges? Where am I getting stuck?

. Where in my life am I unwilling to practice Compassionate Communication?

. What are my blindspots?
. Where might I want to request empathy?

. Where in my life do I need healing?
. What do I know about living from the heart?
