Transforming A Close Relationship

We’ve all got one (or maybe many!): a relationship that we wish were more loving or peaceful, but is somehow stuck. It could be with your partner, your child, your sibling, your parent, your friend, or colleague.We want it to be different. But how? Explore the answers through tools and approaches inspired by NVC.

Bringing our experiences and using tools inspired by Nonviolent Communication (NVC), together we will work on ways to:

  • Move past getting annoyed and angry, and find out why they do what they do. Hint: it's not about you!

  • See beyond the 'issues', and find the real needs behind conflicts

  • Move away from blame and wishing he/she would change, towards more choices and empowerment

  • Find understanding for yourself and the ways you might lash out or withdraw

  • Find ways to be honest that might actually bring you closer together

You're invited to come to this gathering with one close relationship in mind which you would like to change (if you're really brave, bring the other person, too). If you don't have one relationship in mind, this workshop will still be valuable in discovering your own patterns across relationships.

Maximum group size for this workshop is 15.

The workshop will take place at a private residence in the Thorncliffe Area of Calgary
