Transforming Enemy Images: A Nonviolent Communication Workshop

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

People often behave in ways that stimulate pain in us. If we think we are wronged, it can be upsetting, and we may use that pain to justify our response to, and dismissiveness toward, another. When we begin to see someone as the "enemy" we're more likely to experience pain, suffering and separation. If we can learn how to unstick ourselves from that anger, we can gain understanding, compassion and connection.

If you have ever experienced a time when you thought that someone was "bad" or just plain "wrong," this workshop is for you. Learn how to transform your enemy images, judgments and detrimental stories about others into understanding and alignment through shared needs and values. In this introduction to Nonviolent Communication led by Kathy Ziola, certified trainer with The Center for Nonviolent Communication and owner of Communication Works, participants will rediscover one another's humanity through transforming their enemy images.
