The Fundamentals of Nonviolent Communication

Sponsored by the Oregon Network for Compassionate
This workshop is for you if you are new to Nonviolent Communication (NVC) or if you have some prior experience with NVC and wish to deepen your NVC consciousness and skills.

     Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17
 9:30 am -4:30 pm              
Yachats Commons, 4th St. & Hwy 101 
About Nonviolent Communication
Imagine connecting with each person's human spirit in all situations and allowing everyone's needs to be equally valued. Imagine creating organizations and life-serving systems responsive to the needs of all.
NVC was developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D. (1934-2015). The process of NVC helps connect us with what is alive in ourselves and in others moment-to-moment, with what we or others could do to make life more wonderful, and with an awareness of what gets in the way of natural giving and receiving. NVC strengthens our ability to inspire compassion from others and respond compassionately to others and ourselves

As a result of participating in this interactive two-day training you can expect to be able to:
  • Identify and avoid some common blocks to compassionate connection
  • Distinguish between needs and wants
  • Make clear requests in positive action language
  • Say "No" in a way that will increase the chances of it being heard by another
  • Express (and receive) gratitude in a fuller way than most of us have learned to do
FEE:$100 (Early registration: $80 if received by September 2) Income from this training will be used to support the Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication. 

REGISTRATION:  Pre-registration is required for this workshop.
To register: Please mail check, payable to ORNCC to: Gary Baran, c/o ORNCC, P.O. Box#4, 1430 Willamette St., Eugene, OR 97401.

To volunteer email Susan at


Monthly gatherings: Sundays  6-9pm
Next event is  Sept 3rd, Oct TBA

Inspired by and modified from Joanna Macy's The Work That Reconnects. Facilitated by Heron Brae and Dusty Bloomingheart.

In this series of community-building participatory workshops we honestly face the state of the world and allow our gratitude, despair, fears, and insights to be expressed and heard. Our simple ritual style is based in cross-cultural principles of connecting with the living earth, our home.

Themes we may explore include: connecting with ancestors and future generations, remembering our place in the natural world, seeing from another perspective (human or otherwise), and reflections to move us forward in taking action. This healing is done within a social change framework, in order to create a world of social, racial, and environmental justice.

By donation $0-30. 
All proceeds go to support a different organization every month:
Winnemum Wintu's Run4Salmon, Lakota Law Project (Standing Rock legal defense), EarthRoots (QTIPOC sanctuary land project near Roseburg), and others
