EMBODYING NON-VIOLENT COMMUNICATION
with David Weinstock
March 21-23, 2020 Houston
We are very fortunate to welcome David Weinstock, CNVC certified trainer, back to Houston for three days in March 2020.
Practice embodying nonviolence through movement and play. Whole mind/body/linguistic practice, engaged over time, is where we come face to face with the history we've embodied, our deeper selves, our most profound gifts, and the motivation to connect more compassionately in the world.
· Develop your empathic listening faculties
· Cultivate a centered presence in stressful times;
· Make decisions and take actions that align with your values;
· Nurture intimate connections and cultivate community
David Weinstock is an international trainer of Nonviolent Communication, a Somatic Coach, Aikido instructor and author of "Becoming What You Need": Practices for Embodying Nonviolent Communication".
